Popis - HEIMWARTS:
If you're a neofolk aficionado familiar with Steinklang's Pagan Folk collection, or the Austrian club scene, Klammheim should be a name you've noticed. And now Klammheim's debut album is here. Heimwärts is a collection of melancholic, soft-spoken and acoustic folk songs that occasionally reveal Klammheim's roots in heaver, rockier sounds. All vocals are sung in lead singer Dea's Styrian (Austrian) dialect, and to augment the band's line-up of guitars, accordion and percussion are guest musicians such as Thomas Bojden (Die Weisse Rose) and Benjamin Sperling (Jännerwein). The album is based around the longing for the Heimat, the mythical homeland of German romantics.
But you dont need to be a feather pen-swinging poet to long for the Heimat, it's enough to think that the snow was whiter, the rain softer, the world more magical, back when you were younger - and to long for the times and places that made you who you are. One song "Wandel zur Ruh" is based on the lyrics of a Styrian Writer, Paula Grogger. The song "Namenlos" ("Nameless") is based around a cemetery in Vienna which contains the remains of souls who drowned in the river Danube. The album is housed in a lavish digipack with a 16-page booklet created by Benjamin König (Lunar Aurora) from Sperber Illustrations, based around photographs by lead singer Dea. Klammheim have not run
straight off the neofolk mill that seems to be working overtime these days. They are as indebted to Austropop as neofolk, as influenced by Wolfgang Ambros as Death in June. - "Heimwärts" is truly one of the best and most classical neofolk albums ever!
