Nachtmahr : Unbeugsam - 2xCD Nachtmahr : Unbeugsam - 2xCD  Ref: 21778 From day one of his plans to attain musical world domination, NACHTMAHR had to endure head winds the strength of a hurricane. He was severely criticized, openly attacked, passionately hated. Alliances were formed against him, old friendships were buried. And still, Thomas Rainer kept going. With every new album, every EP, every gig he proved iron will and constancy, prevailed – and forever changed the antics of the Gothic scene with his art, his aesthetics and his apocalyptic sound like few did before him. His artworks, the uniforms, the panache and the linguistics established a fashion of its own, a unique feature by which his troops were instantly recognizable.

All those years, his followers stood by his side. The NACHTMAHR army grew rapidly and is growing to this day, with allegiances around the world. Only last year, Supreme Commander Rainer dignified this loyalty with the fan album “Mit vereinten Kräften”. Now he is looking back at his hitherto campaigns for the very first time. A better name than “Unbeugsam” (“unfaltering”) is hardly imaginable for this first extensive NACHTMAHR retrospective. Ten years of NACHTMAHR, ten years of Imperial Austrian Industrial, ten years a fist in the face of the critics, grudgers and betrayers.

Thus, this double album is not an ordinary best-of affair that's more or less useless for a dedicated follower of any band. While this Industrial incubus is retrospectively wreaking havoc on the first CD and is wildly thrashing through the first ten years, album two comes as a real treasure for all sonic soldiers and girls in uniform. It solely consists of rarities and of songs from sold-out and sought-after releases, a special highlight of course being the tracks from the “Kunst ist Krieg”, the first NACHTMAHR release ever! Once limited to a mere 999 items, this remarkable debut quickly became one of the most eligible collector's items in the entire Industrial/Electro genre. Even all those years ago, an unprecedented aural force gave a first taste of the storm that was already then brewing at the horizon. The rest is history...

Further nightmares are fueled by the all-new songs “Feiert das Fleisch” and “Schlag zu!”, allowing a devastating first glimpse into the menacing new era of this all-devouring creature. Additionally, two extensive and elaborate booklets guarantee yet another visual feast. Everybody familiar with this project is aware of the importance of its visual language. Often copied, never outgunned – yet another front at which NACHTMAHR is the true pioneer. The first booklet takes the stunned beholder on a tour through the artworks and photo campaigns of these past ten years, refined by many rare pictures from the very early days. Booklet two captivates with a wild ride through the NACHTMAHR forays into the world's clubs and festival stages, once more remarkably high-lighting this Industrial revolution. For the very beginning, NACHTMAHR was so much more than music, so much more than a massive sound binging everyone to their knees. NACHTMAHR is a philosophy and a way of life, an ideology of its own. In this context, the “Unbeugsam” retrospective is an impressive demonstration of power, the biography of an emperor – uncomfortable, unrelenting, unfaltering!
