With their debut "The Stars Are Dead Now" a landmark of Depressive Black Metal from Germany was released by COLDWORLD. The one-man project achieved to create a very unique style of ambient black metal fully dedicated to desolation and bleakness.
COLDWORLD's multi-instrumentalist G.B. also contributed to bands like Antlers, Grift, and Farsot. Besides his activities in the black metal scene, G.B. is also known to be a member of SANGRE DE MUERDAGO (Spa/Ger) and various other folk acts bringing an emotive approach to folkloristic music.
Already in the early days "The Stars Are Dead Now" was advanced with two additional tracks, followed by multiple re-issues showcasing the interrest in this recording. However, the record always kept its tense character making it the perfect soundtrack for dreary days. The release comprises of seven titles, of which one is a fully instrumental ambient track ("The Old Ghost In The Well"). All lyrics and music were solely done by G.B. giving this project a rather unparalleled sound. Undoubtedly "The Stars Are Dead Now" must be considered a true must-have for those involved in a more ambient-rooted kind of black metal and the sounds of isolation.
After 15 years time has finally come to bring "The Stars Are Dead Now" back to mind again. Eisenwald proudly presents the definite edition of this melancholic masterpiece featuring a completely new artwork crafted at the House Of Inkantation.
