Witt : Bayreuth 3
How does Joachim Witt summarize the theme of Bayreuth 3? "Condemn Hitler." With this album, Witt makes a passionateargument against fascism and strives to regain a sense of German culture and art that was shattered by the Nazi regime. An intellectual heir of the romantics of the early 19th century, Witt is nevertheless masterful at speaking in a modern voice, delivering well-crafted, hard-hitting cutting edge electro-industrial-metal music that sounds more vital than that of most bands half his age. Includes a duet with Tilo Wollf of Lacrimosa and a bonus track for the US version only: a remix by VNV Nation. This album will certainly appeal to fans of bands that Witt has inspired, such as Eisbrecher, Rammstein, Oomph! and Megaherz.
Who inspired Rammstein? Let’s just say that one of their favorite musicians, Joachim Witt, had his first Top 10 single more than 15 years before their first album came out. Germany’s famed "Golden Rider" continues his 30-year career by releasing the 3rd chapter of his "Bayreuth" album trilogy. With over two million records sold, several top ten albums and singles (including Goldener Reiter and a duet with Wolfsheim's Peter Heppner, Die Flut) and a fanbase that includes many of today's top alternative acts, Witt is a true legend of the German music community.
