The time of release of ``Zaubererbruder`` could not be better: Right now, all German cinemas are showing trailers to the new Krabat movie. At this point of time A.S.P. are releasing a concept album to this stuff. This is what I call timing because Krabat will be uptodate very soon (``Zaubererbruder`` has entered the German charts at position 13 – the reviewer).
But now to the music: Between rocking midtempos (`Krabat`) and pure acoustic songs (`Die Teufelsmühle`) the whole spectrum of Gothic music is part of this album. Many of the compositions have absolutely fascinating melodies, just like `Der geheimnisvolle Fremde` or even the title track (A.S.P. is here supported by Eric Fish of Subway to Sally).
Butt he highlight of this release is definately master A.S.P. himself. This guy has one of the best singing voices I`ve ever heard. And in addition he writes a completely new interpretation of the story line which is really fascinating. So this album is really worth buying and also the booklet is really worth reading while listening (although all songs are in German).
