Genre/Influences: Cinematographic, Industrial, Experimental.
Background/Info: Autopsia was assisted by Dämmerung Orchestra to ‘reconstruct’ two of their songs. This is the fifth volume in this series, which was released during 2020.
Content: We first get “Funeral Music For 2020”, which must be a link to some tracks released at the album “The Berlin Requiem” (2006) and, which sounds as pure Cinematographic music composed with Industrial sounds and empowered by epic arrangements. “I Am The Resurrection” coming next is a wink to “Je Suis La Resurrection” released on the album “Humanity Is The Devil 1604 – 1994” (1996). We get a similar Cinematographic approach with explicit Industrial percussion parts.
+ + + : The idea to revisit some ‘old’ and sometimes forgotten songs is an original idea. I especially like the rough and unpolished Industrial approach while the recognizable epic arrangements create a part of drama. The way “Funeral Music For 2020” has been achieved with some piano play injects an extra artistic touch to the work.
– – – : This is the kind of music, which clearly appeals for an extra visual support. So I think this production will become more powerful during a live performance.
Conclusion: This is the kind of production, which is made for the biggest fans of the band. It however remains a fascinating experience in Cinematographic Industrial music.
Best songs: “Funeral Music For 2020”.
