Liebestod "Escaping Freedom" CD [CH-338]
Liebestod has established a unique presence in the current landscape of power electronics by utilizing field recordings, acoustic sounds, a variety of electronics and synthesizers alongside spoken word and processed vocals. Encompassing and powerful at times, miserable and afraid at others.
Admist the churning low end, articulate rhythms, static interruptions and deliberate vocals there is a certain kind of tension induced; not the sort of faux-dark alleyway horror often found in such sounds, but a broad daylight approach of a refusal to accept a rapidly approaching reality.
This CD collects two small edition cassettes which were self-released, deftly remastered by Will Killingsworth, and presented in 6-panel digipak designed by the artist himself. Limited edition of 200 copies.
