has captured the listeners with his hymns of pitch-black magic. Dark shudders, deepest leadvocals and thrilling craft of composing within the marrow of Gothic, Industrial-Metal and Electro have become his trademarks ever since. Driving sequences lead into compelling verses which are soon countered by harsh metal-riffs.
Finally the listener gets subdued by an overwhelming combination of catchiness, denseness and heavenly choirs. Rendered with astounding sovereignty, this combination found its next manifestation in the second album 'Empire Of Dark Salvation', which moreover presented an improved production. Songs as 'Angel', 'Wish', 'Dark Salvation' or 'Monsters' remain jewels despite fleeting time. Damnation, salvation by darkness, burning passions, the cruel fascination with death, luring sin.
Armoured with black humour Gothminister
's lyrics constantly swirl around these dark poles. Musical art and striking visual appearance of Gothminister
have resulted in long lasting success on European stages and dancefloors. The third album 'Happiness In Darkness', released in 2008 presented a slight drift to the regions of Rock, Alternative and Metal. Improved artistry made the darkness within captivating and even more lively and energetic.Björn
himself was considering quitting Gothminister
after this trilogy. 'All that you do is based on your craving inside. If you don't feel the urge to go on, then you should end it all.' Luckily these words, spoken in late 2008, turned out to be an empty prophecy. His album 'Anima Inferna', produced by US-soundwizard Neil Kernon
, exceedes even the highest expectations.
Powerful metal riffs march relentlessly arm in arm with juicy Electro-sequences. The Master himself reveals an astonishing range of vocal-art: from the deepest Gothic-dungeons up to the higher spheres of steaming Rock. Verses of viciously growled rhythm-figures are followed by overwhelming refrains, sometimes followed by yet another exciting chorus. Impossible? Then listen to such killer tracks as 'Stonehenge', 'Liar' or 'Juggernaut'.
