Rainer Landfermann – Mein Wort in Deiner Dunkelheit

“‘Mein Wort in Deiner Dunkelheit’, which translates to ‘My word in your darkness’, is an album about introspection, self-awareness, and – ultimately – about beauty: its experience, appreciation, and sometimes, the painful loss of it.”

Rate this:

German avant-garde extreme metal musician Rainer Landfermann and his strange, beautiful, genre-crushing new solo album “Mein Wort in Deiner Dunkelheit”.

Featured on the album are ten utterly dark and highly diverse songs that are pushing the boundaries of the extreme metal genre – dramatic low-frequency waves of bowed double basses, tenebrous choirs and somber jazz ballad parts harmoniously join blasting drums and grim avantgarde guitar riffs.

The new album was recently described by Zero Tolerance Magazine as “an explosion of unclassifiable, experimental creativity where *that* voice rises out of the depths to give us nightmares once more”, and “as far from the norm as one could possibly imagine”.

Rainer, through his past work with Bethlehem, has been listed among the “Top 30 Greatest Extreme Vocalists of All Time” in Decibel Magazine.

For the limited art book edition, Rainer Landfermann teamed up with Russian ballet photographer Daria Chenikova and model Anna Grigoryan, ballerina at the Stanislavsky Ballet in Moscow, who is also featured on the album cover. For each of the ten songs on the album, they created a gorgeous visualization of the theme and mood of the respective music and lyrics – packaged in an elaborately designed art book (22cm x 22cm in size).

German Vocalist and Bass Player Extraordinaire Rainer Landfermann is known for his work with PAVOR, Bethlehem, and his own solo work.

Thrilling, intense and hauntingly expressive to the extreme: Rainer Landfermann’s signature vocals, that iconically shaped BETHLEHEM’s cult classic “Dictius Te Necare” in 1996, return 23 years later on his new solo album “Mein Wort in Deiner Dunkelheit”, released on June 19, 2019.

Featured on the album are ten utterly dark and highly diverse songs that are pushing the boundaries of the extreme metal genre – dramatic low-frequency waves of bowed double basses, tenebrous choirs and somber jazz ballad parts harmoniously join blasting drums and grim avantgarde guitar riffs.

Besides Rainer Landfermann’s vocals, that have been characterized as “one of the sickest and most extreme voices you’ll ever hear from a human being” (doom-metal.com) and made him rank among the “Top 30 Greatest Extreme Vocalists of All Time” in Decibel Magazine, the album highlights Rainer’s extraordinary bass playing (as known from his band PAVOR, which released two albums of highly acclaimed and furiously virtuoso death metal in 1994 and 2003), and contributions of guest musicians like his brother Robert Landfermann on the double bass and PAVOR drummer Michael Pelkowsky.

The German album title translates to “My word in your darkness”. “The album is about introspection, self-awareness, and – ultimately – about beauty:” says Rainer Landfermann, “its experience, appreciation, and sometimes, the painful loss of it.”

“Mein Wort in Deiner Dunkelheit” is available both as download and as an elaborately designed limited art book edition, for which Rainer Landfermann teamed up with Russian ballet photographer Daria Chenikova and model Anna Grigoryan, ballerina at the Stanislavsky Ballet in Moscow, who is also featured on the album cover. For each of the ten songs on the album, they created a gorgeous visualization of the theme and mood of the respective music and lyrics.

All music and lyrics on the album were composed, performed and produced by Rainer Landfermann.
