Wisdoms End An remarkable record as others have pointed it out already.
On the mainstage: a reciting, lyrical whisper, framed by violins, drums, acoustic guitars and e-guitars.
If you come here for black metal, you might be disapointed - this is a new approach on a different musical path.

A worthy interpretation on the topic of love with all its human side effects. Favorite track: Dein knöchern' Kosen.

splatter_opa AOTY for me so far. Favorite track: Sie machen Mangel zum Geschenk.

strufus1190 Dornenreich are back after a long time. And yet again this is a typical Dornenreich record in its creative novelties. But also breaths the intense soundscape as you may await. More than ever this album is a trip through your mind. Love the playfulness und strange ideas brought to life in this one. Could say a lot more, and will probably fail to describe this unique release. Just listen to it. And to the Dornenreich guys, just never stop making music please!

diegodar A very complex yet touching album. The level of composition is top-notch. I will need to wait till I get my physical copy so I can listen while I read the lyrics. Favorite track (for now): Der Freiheit Verlangen nach goldenen Ketten. Favorite track: Der Freiheit Verlangen nach goldenen Ketten.

Entleiber An exceptional record. Quietly intense. Exploring the nuances of feeling, leading the listener closer to the essence. Deeply in love with this album. Favorite track: Sie machen Mangel zum Geschenk.

endzeitgeist I've been listening to Dornenreich since "Nicht um zu sterben" and enjoyed every single album, but this one does, even after a ton of repeated listening, absolutely nothing for me. Favorite track: Der Freiheit Verlangen nach goldenen Ketten.

DORNENREICH offer a veritable cornucopia of wonderful surprises on their ninth full-length "Du wilde Liebe sei". The Tyrolean trio has used the more than seven years that have passed since the release of their latest masterpiece "Freiheit" (2014) well to create a new dimension of sound. Although "Du wilde Liebe sei" remains faithful within the Austrians' musical canon of combining heightened emotional dynamics with expressive momentum, DORNENREICH evolved their trademark sound further into a new dimension: a pulsating earth-rooted web build from percussion, bass, and electric guitars enables their unique vocals, acoustic guitars, and violins to grow wings and freely soar skywards. As the translation of the album title "You Wild Love Be" implies, this record revolves around the mystery of "love" and many of the powerful effects, painful misunderstandings, and complex entanglements that are forever associated with this human idea. Originally audibly inspired by melodic black metal (on their debut album “Nicht um zu sterben”, 1997), DORNENREICH developed a far wider musical horizon on the following seven albums with the progressing inclusion of acoustic instruments and elements derived from folklore and classical music as major contributing factors. Now, "Du wilde Liebe sei" marks the next major step in the band's never predictable evolution to a unique style, which they have dubbed "black arcane rock". With "Du wilde Liebe sei", DORNENREICH enter a new sonic dimension that shines brighter than ever before and witnesses the Austrians climbing onto their highest artistic peak yet – time to get packed and to join their wondrous journey on the trail of love!

Dornenreich Austria

Ever since their foundation in the year 1996, their uniquely intense music, their expressive German lyrics, and their charismatic stage presence are the trademarks of Dornenreich. The Austrians care little for stylistic determinations: albeit deeply rooted in the dark soil of 90s Black Metal, the band created a work of reference for German Metal with their third album "Her Von Welken Nächten". ... more
