On april the 26th 1986 the biggest nuclear catastrophe so far caused mankind to freeze. An explosion inside the reactor of block 4 of the nuclear power plant Tschernobyl caused the meltdown. A surrealistic view appeared for those who came to manage the cataclysm. Especially in Pripyat where most workers of the power plant lived. It looked like time stood still because the city stayed what it looked like when it was evacuated.
Facing the 25th anniversary of the ultimate MCA the three musicians focused that city. Having in mind that such a nuclear cataclysm could happen again. Shortly after the first recordings took place the world was left breathless again: Fukushima. Caused by a Tsunami the reactors of that power plant couldn't be cooled sufficient. It caused an MCA in Japan.
Encouraged through the actuality of their topic the foremost album was made. 'We are very proud of the results of our cooperation with Bruno Kramm
, who did the mastering of the album', said Matthias.
Starting with track '1986', whose intro is mainly the evacuation call for the inhabitants of pripyat over track '2011' inspired by asian stylistics till the last track 'evacuation', the band managed to build a fascinating but also frightening document of what was then and now.
'Pripyat - Home Of Lilith' reminds and arouse without leaving club compatibility behind. Songs like 'Wir Wollen Jetzt!', 'Disappointed', and 'Here We Are' belong to club scenes as well a into your compact disc player. Fans of electronic music will conquer the dancefloor where concentrated listeners will face the topic nuclear power.
'Pripyat - Home Of Lilith' is Nova-Spes
tenth album so far. The band was built during a research project by Matthias Hübner
(music, words, vocals), Steffen Pöhler
(keys) and Peter Walter
(keys). By know the three musicians created their own style. As a german scene magazine already wrote: it is something in between Depeche Mode
, And One
and Fad Gadget
. Today Danse Macabre is their label partner making it possible to reach the masses.
