The Dutch masters of horror are back with their most flamboyant album so far. On "Franckensteina Strataemontanus", CARACH ANGREN resurrect the gruesome story of troubled soul Conrad Dippel - the inspiration of Mary Shelley’s novel 'Frankenstein'. CARACH ANGREN have extended all the sonic colours on their established palette to dazzling effect.
Their trademark whipping guitars weave harsh melodies and sinister soundscapes, which are beautifully contrasted by opulent keyboards and majestic orchestrations. That Till Lindemann (RAMMSTEIN) and Peter Tägtgren (PAIN) have called upon the composition talent of Clemens "Ardek" Wijers is a telling sign of his outstanding mastery of the craft. Another signatory counterpoint is provided by Seregor's fierce rasping and shrieking vocals.
Adding to the impact, Namtar has become a relentless driving force with his hart hitting yet intricate drumming. With "Franckensteina Strataemontanus", the Dutch push their unashamedly theatrical style to a new intense height.
