Blutengel - Fountain Of Destiny CD

Blutengel dedicate again themselves to the eighties and dress in “Fountain of Destiny” ten iconic songs from probably the most musically formative decade in their own garb. In doing so, they manage the incredible balancing act of respectfully retaining the original essence of the pieces on the one hand and putting their own stamp on each track on the other. Perhaps this works so well because his songs “still sound a bit retro today”, explains mastermind Chris Pohl. And so the two new Blutengel songs fit in perfectly: The instrumental “Journey to the Edge of the World” is simply great, while “Unsere Zeit” gives the hope that is so urgently needed right now, without sounding pathetic. The cover songs were of course handpicked by Chris and Ulrike Goldmann and are those tracks “that seemed to me from today’s point of view not of this world”, explains Chris with that certain sparkle in his eyes that you only get when listening to eighties music. Whether it’s the emotional “Forever Young”, the already in the original wonderfully wacky “Dr. Mabuse” or the dystopian “Down in the Park” – there’s heart and soul in each of the cover versions. In combination with the professional skills and a natural feel for the right sound “Fountain of Destiny” offers a high delight for the ears.
