Out on July 16 is the all new studioalbum by Blutengel: “Erlösung – The Victory of Light” with artwork of Stefan Heilemann (Heilemania). The first single is sung in German and English – “The Victory of Light” – and already is a good indication of the approach of the material as it’s the first time that Blutengel will release so many German sung songs on an album.
Regarding the album’s title song Blutengel mastermind Chris Pohl says: “The light can also be interpreted as redemption in the sense of death – you see the light into which you shall leave…”
The release comes in 4 different versions:
- a standalone 14-track album.
- a digipak 2CD which comes with a 7-tracks bonus CD called “Erlösung – In the Shadows“, featuring exclusive songs.
- a double LP containing all the 14 main album tracks.
- a 3CD boxset containing the double CD set plus a 3rd bonus CD called “Erlösung – A world beyond”. That third CD holds 6 more songs. The triple CD set comes augmented with an A5 sized book, “Erlösung – The Complete Story“, a LED keychain flashlight with the Blutengel logo printed on and a hologram sticker with the name Blutengel.

Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
