German atmospheric Black Metal maestros Germany Mosaic have been working on new material, and a new album is scheduled to be released on the 22nd of April, via Eisenwald. The new album, titled "Heimatspuk", features 10 new tracks, with one of them already made available for listening. Check out "Unterhulz Zoubar":


The band commented on the new record's inspiration and themes:

The album continues where its predecessor "Secret Ambrosian Fire" left off. The modern world lies in ruins and has consumed itself. Lyrically, it is permeated by various leitmotifs, such as darkness, sanguine, and forest mysticism - as well as the central elements of earth and air - whose attributes and symbolism characterize the album.

Reflection, contemplation, inner catharsis, and world escape are driven by heart and soul interwoven with moments of bittersweet melancholy and nostalgia. Once again it is about old Thuringian traditions, poetry, and customs; about ghosts and demons; about the devil; and about the simple man who must not lose himself in the wild world.

Likewise, it is about the power of nature as the ultimate shelter; about winter customs and ghostly witches. In addition, the album is strongly inspired by the works of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Georg Heym, Georg Trakl, and many other regional Thuringian poets. Dark primal folk melodies, sung in the regional dialect, lead up to wild atmospheric Black Metal anthems.


The complete tracklist for "Heimatspuk" is as follows:

  1. Wir sind Geister
  2. Die alte Straße
  3. Teufelsberg
  4. Hullefraansnacht
  5. Blutnelke
  6. Der Köhlerknecht
  7. Nordwaldrauch
  8. Heilstatt
  9. Unterhulz Zoubar
  10. Tief verschneit die ganze Welt


The cover art was designed by Austrian artist Alexander "Irrwisch" Trinkl:
