Sturmovik – Feldweihe

An LP on impressive heavy vinyl, released by Tesco, limited to 750 copies. The bandname sounds threatening, and so does the music. War is the theme here, and the musical style is not too heavy industrial, often more ambient/soundscape like. Feldweihe could be the soundtrack to a WWII movie. Many samples are used, from U-boots, aircrafts, military speeches and the like. The use of old schlagers reminds of Der Blutharsch, the orchestral parts of Turbund Strumwerk or Von Thronstahl. This may not sound too original on paper, but I think it is executed very well!
