About

For the love of historical Germanic poetry and organic electronic music we established ‘Die goetheanistische Tonkunstgesellschaft Schwarzblut’ in 2007. We released 3 full length albums and various EP’s through Alfa Matrix. We love our classical poets and philosophers, as well as Wagnerian orchestrations and craft beers. We do energetic and visual live performances. We are a tree with deep roots, inspired by lore and legacy. Our 4th album ‘Idisi’ will be released April 20th 2018. And so our story continues.

IDISI IT OUT TODAY!
With great pride and excitement we present to you our new album Idisi. The music of Idisi is based on centuries old texts and poems on topics such as liberty, religion, prejudice and politics. Words of ancient struggles that are more contemporary than we could have ever imagined. We spent 4 years researching, studying and composing, during which the album became a reflection of the world around us.

We would like to thank the following fantastic friends that brought their talent, effort and general good cheer to our otherwise dark and dreadful music:

“This band celebrates the old languages and catapults them onto the dancefloor. Especially the orchestral parts give you goosebumps!”

“A ‘larger than life’ production with huge tension between rhythm and melody, providing great dynamics.”
