Weltanschauung Dark Ambient, Power Electronics Lucisferrato With Weltanschauung, This is Lucisferrato's (LC) fifth musical output. Already quite a cult project in relevant circles, a release on Old Europa Cafe is likely to push the artists to fame a little more. Hailing from St Petersburg, at first glance I may be mistaken to label LC as Russian National Socialists - there is a definate aroma of Germanic and Nazi idealogy in the song titles. "Neuordnung" is a rather bizarre introduction to an album, as it is just short of eight minutes in length, and features nothing except chanting and distorted harmonising. Not much to say about it, except it's not much of a mood setter. Lucisferrato, for the untamed is a bastard mix of Power Electronics, Abstract Ambience and samples from Hell. Take for example "Wehrmacht - Totenburgen". A bastard noise of Sludge, Distortion, and deranged Vocal samples. I guess it goes with the song title, when named after the Nazi Secret Police you can't expect anything tranquil, can you? At least the music is enjoyable, it took me three tracks to settle in to this CD, and I am only just beginning to like it. Far too much going on, too much instability. "Hakenkreuz" is the real gem here - a wall of distorted melody, overlapping a sample of one of Hitler's Speeches (complete with "Sieg Heil" et al). Nazi samples are too overused nowadays, but at least the music compliments it. "Angstbroche" is a return to more accapella vocal offerings, and unfortunately, it throws the album right off rhythm for me. Two tracks too similar. Finally, the last track ( and as I believe, a "bonus" track). "The Lord Is A Man Of War" fits in with the rest of the album like a Condom on a Sailor, but it adds a certain extra element of insanity to the release. The front cover has a Bible being consumed on the front, and the inlay offers us the epitaph "The Lord Is A Man Of War : The Lord Is His Name. - Exodus 15:3". So at least this release does one thing - points out the absurd hypocrisy in the book of lies. Essentially, we have a concept battered and bruised already - racial supremacy, religious intolerance and Elitism. It works, but only just. Saved by 3 tracks, the final track being the real gem on here. Interesting release, not my cup of tea, but I would listen to it again. File next to Grey Wolves, NTT. 350
