PARZIVAL “Urheimat Neugeburt”

“Urheimat Neugeburt”
(Mighty Music)

Battle Helm Rating

This is Danish PARZIVAL’s eight album. Apparently an institution in Danish underground music yet totally unfamiliar to me. They started life as an industrial band under the name Stiff Miners. Two albums were released before they changed name to PARZIVAL and started to be more rock/metal minded. Musically this is bombastic and OTT. Almost Wagner like in attitude. I don’t really know what to compare this to as it really is an entity all its own. This album is a reinterpretation of the original album “Urheimat”. And album that was much more EBM and electronica oriented. Listening to this new album and not having heard the original album I feel that I have no need to do so. This is enough for me to know that I prefer this version to the original. If your brightest imagination can imagine Nick Cave doing a metal album this is what it might sound like. Or if Einstürzende Neubauten goes metal. I like this a lot. Anders Ekdahl
