A new era is about to dawn for Blutengel with ‘Erlösung – The Victory of Light’.
Blutengel and their music is an individual attitude and confession of belief – almost a religion of its very own! Never before did Blutengel release so many German songs on an album as this time. Allied with the artwork of Stefan Heilemann (Heilemania), Blutengel will seduce you entirely into their world. The light is followed by the darkness and the darkness by the light. An eternal cycle ignites in ‘Erlösung (Redemption) – The Victory of Light’ and takes the listener into the realm of Blutengel.
Already in the gripping first single – sung in German and English – ‘The Victory of Light’ the light shows us the way. Electronic sound, raw, futuristic – in combination with the irresistible appeal to dance and epic rousing choruses, the album reveals a true anthem potential. By the time we can fully enjoy the album, we are called to hit “Repeat” for the single(s), which conveys the prevailing message, especially at this time.
The concept and the story were penned by Chris Pohl.
The music clip was filmed and edited by Annie Bertram.
“We are the light! The light will win!” says Blutengel mastermind Chris Pohl. “The light can also be interpreted as redemption in the sense of death – you see the light into which you shall leave…”, taking this into account, Chris describes the collective transition into infinity herein… Be it as it shall be: In the end, there is the LIGHT!
The brand new Blutengel album ‘Erlösung – The Victory Of Light’ will be released worldwide on July 16, 2021, via Out Of Line Music as a CD and as a double CD in a digipak with 8 bonus tracks.
For vinyl enthusiasts, there will be a double vinyl in the colors turquoise and transparent. As a collector’s item, the double vinyl comes also as a 180g “glow in the dark” (a vinyl that illuminates in the dark) and is exclusively available in Out Of Line’s store. All types of vinyl come including a download code and are strictly limited. For the very first time, a Blutengel album will also be available on a limited cassette (MC). For the authentic cassette retro feeling. And to fight the tape clutter, there will be an imprinted pencil to go with it (exclusively available in the Out Of Line Shop). And the highlight is a limited box set. Besides the double CD in digipak the box contains the exclusive bonus CD “A World Beyond”, the photo book “Erlösung – The Complete Story” (a book with the complete lyrics & excl. pictures by Annie Bertram) in a DIN A5 format, a keychain with a LED flashlight and a very special hologram sticker with the Blutengel logo.
