Violet : Violet Steam Experience - CD  Ref: 20912 Recently, the ambitious and enterprising producers Bianca Stücker "Cinnamon Star" and Oliver Pietsch "Dr. P" busied themselves mainly with their underground music and belly dance project The Violet Tribe, earning international acclaim, but now they have returned to work with VIOLET, expanding the musical cosmos of the band to create The Violet Steam Experience.

The band hasn't lost its penchant for historic and fantastic elements, but now, in 2013, Violet have slightly turned away from their medieval leanings and focus on Victorian Gothic splendour, bittersweet melodies and end-of-time pop gems sparkling with an eerie beauty. On nine extravagant tracks, the six musicians set forth to explore steampunk aesthetics in their very own, astounding way: Lord Byron's "Prometheus" has been given an opulent, dark but catchy treatment with hit potential, while "Apocalyptic City" fascinates with its laid-back, bewildering charm. "I'm Leaving Ground" has a haunting, memorable quality, and "Teaparty 42" bears resemblance to a scene from Alice In Wonderland. And a dark hymn like "Sleepless" finds a perfect, contrasting counterpart in the light and airy "Deep Down Underground". To coincide with the release of their 5th album, Violet planned a number of gigs, presenting a show beyond competition. Grotesque and ghostly, glamorous and always with a pinch of irony - just like the Violet Steam Experience.
