NACHTMAHR – Widerstand

NACHTMAHR – Widerstand

„The history of liberty is a history of resistance“
Woodrow Wilson

Stand up. Even though you hit rock bottom. Fight. Even though you have an army against you. Resistance is the dissidents’ ultima ratio, the weapon of antagonists, of idealists. To this day, the fallen heroes of the French revolution are being honored in song, to this day the tale of the brave Spartan warriors braving Persia's’ force is unforgotten.


For many years, a similar tale is being told in the world of Industrial music. It is the story of a solitaire bound to spread fear amongst us. His name is Thomas Rainer. For eleven years now, his project NACHTMAHR is shaking the very foundations of our world. On countless releases he savours ruin and decadence, bathes in ruthless aggression and marches relentlessly across scorched earth. Yet, he retains a carnal aura bordering on the obscene – the harbinger of a new age, of a rampant last night on earth in the glare of the apocalypse.

This it what also makes the latest EP offering “Widerstand” (“resistance”) far more than a massively produced, sublimely arranged club manifesto of the purest zeitgeist: His is the resistance to end all resistance, incarnated in the two brand-new songs “Firmament” and “Ungezähmtes Land”. NACHTMAHR‘s call to arms as of 2018 is a bit more melodic, a bit more dramatic, yet it doesn‘t lack common virtues like destructive beat dominance and wildly thrashing Industrial madness. Even more variety, however, can be found in the numerous remixes, reworks and edits present on this EP: An Apocalyptic Folk version of “Mütterchen Russland” produced by Thomas Rainer himself, “Ungezähmtes Land” with Russian vocals courtesy of Michail Evodkimov (EISENWUT) and “Firmament” with Maria Mar‘s (OMNIMAR) unique voice. Add to that stomping remixes by ES23, GREG OROTH, SHAÂGOTH and AFFENTANZ as well as, huge surprise, a rendering of “Ungezähmtes Land” by Martial Folk legends ORDO ROSARIUS EQUILIBRIO. Their take produces a bombastic hymn to the end of all things. Ten tracks, ten different worlds – ten nightmares with overlength.

This gripping intermezzo, it must be duly noted, is true to the rest of the strict NACHTMAHR commandments as well. Thus, also a luxurious, voluptuous packaging with high gloss photography as well as yet another take on NACHTMAHR‘s iconic uniform fetish are part of the deal. Everything different as expected, everything enthralling as expected from Austria‘s most famous partisans. Or, as Shakespeare would have said: „Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more“ – and make this march yet another triumphant procession.
