[Music post] Blutengel – Black Symphonies Box set
If you didn’t know by now Blutengel are my favourite band and I’m probably ONE of their biggest fans (I could name a couple of others I know and there’s loads out there) so whenever there is a new release I get a wave of excitement.
You can imagine how excited I was to see the release date for the Black Symphonies album/box set and as box sets go this one is going to be the best by far.
I’ll just let these images do the talking for a moment:

Now I’ll tell you a little bit about the album.
For those who caught the Gothic meets Klassik concert in 2012 or Blutengel’s classical tour in 2013 or even the videos on Youtube (though Youtube videos don’t compare to the live show) you’ll know what the songs will sound like and how incredible they will be.
For those who didn’t catch the concerts and haven’t seen the videos let lone even heard of Blutengel, “Black Symphonies” is an orchestral album of some of Blutengel’s songs with a symphony orchestra.
Chris and Ulrike were so impressed and mesmerized by the Gothic meets Klassik concert where they performed with the symphony orchestra of Zielona Gora at the Neues Gewandhaus Leipzig they put together a classical tour with a chamber ensemble because they didn’t want it to be just a one time concert. Now they took the next step to creating what will be an incredible album to relive those concerts through this grand studio production.
The album also features a new song “Krieger”.
“Black Symphonies” will also be released as a deluxe album which features a live DVD of the best parts of the Gothic meets Klassik concert at Neues Gewandhaus, Leipzig, and of course as the box set mentioned above.
I saw the concert in Berlin in November and was blown away, hearing the songs I love by Blutengel backed by an orchestra really was mesmerizing and took my breathe away, this album really will be amazing and I can’t wait for the release date which is FEBRUARY 28TH 2014
Below are two photos I took at the concert at Huxleys Neue Welt in Berlin on November 9th:
