Art Of Propaganda
This album was originally meant to be published under the banner of "Licht Erlischt.", the project, however, had been renamed, partially in order to dissociate from contemporary DSBM trends.
The full-length album comprises 7 hymns, one of which an instrumental piece, which may be described as an utterly sinister take on classical clean-voiced Doom Metal laced with Funeral Doom Metal elements, yet devoid of Stoner/Sludge type charateristics, and heavily inspired by the great works of Warning (UK), Inquisition (USA), Nortt (DEN) and Primordial (IRE).
Drawn by the grand visual artist at "View from the Coffin", the album cover bespeaks the contained themes: "To take up the Cross" lights out the darkest corners of the mind and flushes out the rare and radiant spirit of mental unsteadiness being rooted in the occurence of loss, love, longing and fear, yet is NOT suited for those looking for self-pitying musicianship or suicide as a romantical concept (as covered in "To cast a spot upon the Death of your Death")."
