Das 2. Gebot record, released in April
2003, UNHEILIG are a well-known quantity in the
dark scene. With Zelluloid, the German
one-man project is continuing it's way towards the top of the
German electro/gothic- scene, improving it's style to a new, not
so electronic level.
The EBM- beats have been reduced to make room for some smoother
and not so tough rhythms, at the same time the guitars don't sound
like Casio anymore.
The music reaches from harder, Rammstein-like songs (Willst
Du Mich, Freiheit) to pathetic and melancholic ballads
like Herz Aus Eis or Mein König.
Especially Mein König is not suitable for the present
summer heat, a completely sad and frustrating song, facing death
as global topic. Great.
Though there is no real failure on this album, some songs don't
reach the level of i.e. Freiheit or Mein König,
but due to the long playing time of over one hour, you can turn
a blind eye.
Check out the UNHEILIG homepage, where you'll
find tons of information and also some sounds of Zelluloid.
UNHEILIG is softer than Rammstein, not so sterile
like pure EBM and more credible than Oomph. So why are you waiting
