Tanzwut: Schreib Es Mit Blut

The title of Tanzwut's new and tenth album in a long career, Schreib Es Mit Blut plays around with notions of Goethe's Faust and the pact with the devil and is claimed to be, by their record label, "German medieval rock at its best – catchy melodies, bagpipes, hard guitar riffs and German lyrics." I have to say I enjoyed this album enough to want to share it with my elder son who lives in China so I sent him a link to the video of the title track and was somewhat surprised and disappointed when his response was, "Weird video but pretty generic industrial metal otherwise."

I would disagree somewhat given the fairly extensive use of bagpipes and other acoustic instruments which, in my opinion gives Tanzwut somewhat of an edge and in "Stille Wasser" which features erstwhile Leaves' Eyes singer Liv Kristine the band have created a sinister yet commercially viable song which should raise their profile somewhat. Think Blackmore's Night with a growly male vocalist and you won't be too far off.
