Erdspiegel fuses dungeon synth with German folk tunes.

German folk music is often performed in a conservative setting. Attempts by German left and alternative musicians to participate in the folk revival of the 70s and to modernize the genre by connecting their music to contemporary music discourse were largely unsuccessful compared to the efforts of their brothers and sisters in other places of the world. The songs on this album aim to pick up the ideas and songs that were developed and rediscovered by these musicians and reconnect and decipher them for a international audience interested in dark romanticism.

Our reinterpretations originate from myths, nature, resilience and contemplation. "Lost in Wooden Depths", "Vampires Reign" and "In the World to Come, Fungus Will Rule" are original concepts.

For further informations on the individual songs and their historical backgrounds and thematic concepts, open the corresponding information page.

The album was created with the free software LMMS.
