From neo-folk to neo-classical, these years have been formative for different acts within those genres and beyond. One act in particular that stuck in my mind was Inneres Gebirge, with their clear historic anchoring and fierce folk-music that transcends into different genres as well, but also into neo-folk territory. This German act released their first debut-album in 2012, which went by the title of “Schlafender König“, which spans from The Early German Romantics, to virtually different times in an historic context – that can be connected to their works. Most notably the musical interpretation of Uwe Lammla’s poem “Schwarzer Wein“, from the track with the same name, taken from the book by the same poet – which goes by the name of “Idäisches Licht“, from 2006. Which is interesting, since they grab what they can from different time-periods, with the main focus on Germany – all the time. This is, however, just a brief story taken from what you’ll have to buy to discover – that is buying their CD.
They were also a part of Heathen Harvest’s compilation “Samhainwork I“, with a track that isn’t related to the CD at all, namely “Holy Thursday“. The compilation was released in 2012, the same year, but later in October. Members of Inneres Gebirge are also closely related, or part of the band Aeldaborn. What makes them unique is what has been said before, it is that they interpret different parts that create a unique view, into the folklore that exists and the folklore that they bring to life within their music. I must say that this is only a brief explanation of what they’re about, and where they are coming from, which is just scratching on the surface. The members of this group are Sepp Funkel, S. Dante, Thomas Lueckewerth, Ron Con Koma, Mari, Michael Weinstein and Fräulein Stein. Sepp Funkel and Thomas Lueckewerth are also a part of Aeldaborn. More of the background can be found in this much revealing review by Heathen Harvest’s reviewer Sage, over here.
So, with that said, let’s give you what can be given. In a collaboration with Deggial Records / Edition Roter Drache, the Invisible Guy brings you the track “Do Der Sumer Komen Was” from their aforementioned release “Schlafender König“. I am doing this because of the fact that there weren’t many tracks up by them to begin with, so why wouldn’t there be some kind of collaboration to bring you a track? Well, here it is for your joy and pleasure. I picked the track I find to be the best on the album. Therefore, you can now stream the track down below and go buy the CD from them if you like what you are hearing. Always support something if you’re interested in it, or want to know more.
