NEUN WELTEN - New Album Out Soon, Two Tracks Available For Streaming

German dark folk collective Neun Welten returns with their third full-length album entitled The Sea I'm Diving In to be released on 21st July via Prophecy Productions. This is the band's first album of new material since 2009's Destrunken. It shows Neun Welten take an adventurous musical shift, adding captivating vocals to most songs while incorporating post-rock electric guitars to its base of rich instrumentation.
Neun Welten charms listeners with cinematic storytelling that blends elements of neofolk and post-rock with a film score focus. The first-ever Neun Welten record to include English lyrics - some adapted from the writings of Edgar Allen Poe - 'The Sea I'm Diving In' boasts an unshakable charm that grows stronger as the album plays out. As its title implies, the record features a water-centric theme that sees the element as, at once, a symbol of romanticism and tranquility, disaster and destruction. These thoughts are channeled through songs driven by the group's tranquil singing and lyrical odes to feelings of melancholy, mysticism, love, death and longing and reflective, emotional sound.
Through their violin player Aline Deinert, who is also a (live) member of bands such as Empyrium, Haggard and the chamber pop ensemble Die Kammer, Neun Welten secured the services of renowned German film composer (and Die Kammer member) Matthias Raue ("Löwenzahn" theme, several "Tatort" scores) who recorded The Sea I'm Diving In and who is responsible for the album's rich, warm sound. The Sea I'm Diving In also features the talents of Niko Knappe, singer of Neun Welten labelmates Dark Suns, who plays all drums on the album, co-arranged a number of songs and wrote additional lyrics. In the player below you can give a listen to two tracks, "Drowning" and "The Dying Swan". Preorders are available at this location. Link
