PORTA NIGRA album details revealed

- in News

Two years after the surprising and critically acclaimed “Fin De Siècle”, the two elegant gentlemen in PORTA NIGRA return with a fantastic second album titled “Kaiserschnitt” (“Caesarean”). This time PORTA NIGRA have exchanged their absinthe glasses and opium pipes for rapiers and gunpowder.

Indeed, “Kaiserschnitt” is an opus about the first “Great War” of the world — supposedly “the war to end all wars”. Dedicated to all victims of the megalomania of Kaiser Wilhelm II, the album takes the listener back on a journey to the old German empire of 1914. Stories about the bloody “mensur” fencing duels among hot-blooded German students, the dreadful battles of Verdun and Basra, and the mournful fate of the glamorous femme fatale Mata Hari are among the fascinating stories for which PORTA NIGRA have created a musical homage.

Once again, the artwork has been given to the extravagant artist Valnoir (Metastazis) and, once again, the result is both eccentric and absolutely astonishing!

“Kaiserschnitt” contains 9 elegant and unusual compositions :

1. Die Mensur
2. Femme Fatale
3. Kaiserschnitt
4. In Stahlgewittern
5. Kein schönerer Tod
6. Mata Hari
7. Hepatitis Libido
8. Ich-Zerfall
9. Der letzte Ton

This much awaited new album will be released on March 9th as a lavish Digibook CD limited to 500 copies and digital download.

The Prussian province Coblence in the year 1902, among deceitful beggars, vicious prostitutes and the omnipresent stench of absinthe:

The miserable musicians of PORTA NIGRA decide to cut loose with a last swansong for the dying 19th century: “Fin de Siècle”.

Irritated by the rising mechanisation, in fear of the coming carnages of 1914 and 1939 and heavily intoxicated with the worst poisons, these doomed souls raise their cups to salute the new world and embrace the angel of decadence one last time.

The sensational gramophone record “Fin de Siècle” was released by the French maison Debemur Morti Productions, under the patronage of Wilhelm II, German Emperor, exclusively.

Two years later the two elegant gentlemen return with a second album: “Kaiserschnitt” (“Cesarean”). But this time they have exchanged their absinthe glasses and opium pipes for rapiers and gunpowder!
