New LP + CD - Verwundete Stadt (Wounded City)
On Saturday, 28.10.2017, during a concert in the SPACE of the Ludwig-Forum, Aachen, the new Vinyl-LP + CD "Verwundete Stadt" was introduced. This is an album, in which NECRONOMICON in 5 symphonic rock songs deals with the manifold problems of modern cities. In "Trostlose Stadt (Desolate City)" the impoverishment of a metropolis is described, "Licht und Schatten" tells about the contrast between the living of rich and poor in the same town. "Frühling in Fukushima" tries to describe a glimpse of hope after a nuclear catastrophy. "Alle Jahre wieder" is a studio version of an anti war song which already has been published in a live version in 2016, which originally was written in 1974 against the war in Vietnam. Unfortunately the topic is still up-to-date.
"Verwundete Stadt Berlin" deals with the terror attack of Berlin in Dec. 2016.
The CD additionally comprises a short version of "Licht und Schatten"
