The title of The Vision Bleak's new album "The Unknown" says it all. For their sixth album, the band broke free from the songwriting patterns of the past and dared to compose without any bias or restriction. The result: "The Unknown" is as diverse and boisterously creative as it can get.Lyrically, The Vision Bleak break new ground as well. Gone are the tried-and-trusted nods to horror classics and fictional terror, to legend and lore. What has remained similar is the vividly poetic, at times archaic language, yet the lyrics of "The Unknown" are more metaphoric, closer to the musicians' lives. Gone, therefore, are the times of "creepy and haunting entertainment" - in 2016, The Vision Bleak are facing their personal demons and the horror that lives within themselves.So have the two masterminds really shed their identity? Not at all. Initiates will find plenty of familiar elements on "The Unknown": Schwadorf's unique guitar melodies, Konstanz' characteristic singing, the constantly gripping atmosphere, the interplay between fury and elegance … All of this also elevates the deathship captains' latest work beyond comparison - it is just a breath of fresh air that gives the music a novel shine. "The Unknown" is The Vision Bleak's second birth.
