about

With "Legende" Leichenwetter present their fourth album by now. Even
after more than 10 years of band history the unusual concept still
defines the sounds and lyrics of the 12 album tracks.
Leichenwetter use classic literature in German and shape a truly unique
oeuvre out of it by means of hammering, driving and sometimes dark
rock music.
On "Legende" texts by Ernst Stadler, Clemens Brentano, Georg Trakl,
Johann Gottfried von Herder, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Conrad
Ferdinand Meyer, Ernst Moritz Arndt and Heinrich Heine are to be found
being interpreted in a variety of ways and resulting into an album full of
epic-hymnic rock songs.
This concept actually allows to integrate critical and current topics as is impressively proven by the track "Beschwörung" (Heinrich Heine) that deals with child abuse inside of the Church.
The only exception is a thrilling cover version of Falco's "Out Of The Dark" which is, yet, in total harmony with the whole sound characteristics of the album. Regarding composition and production "Legende" knows how to impress by its complex arrangements
and a varying orchestration. The continuous use of driving and heavy guitars gets specifically and appropriately enriched by keyboards, strings and acoustic guitars to keep the tension high throughout
the whole album to the very end. "Legende" will be released on October, 15th. In the next few months, the band is going to play a couple of gigs. Check it out! It is worth your while.
