Some people claim that In Extremo is a band that has lost the inspiration needed to write good music, and while this statement is not completely false, In Extremo keep releasing material on a constant basis.
This time the Germans got signed with mega company Universal Records, and you can tell that they received the proper financial support, the presentation of their eight Cd so far is completely astonishing, specially the Digipak version, I liked specially the band photos on the booklet.
Basically this new album, "Mein Rasend Herz" begins where "7" left, and I could say that there's no big changes or any progression here, so we could call this album "8".
In Extremo plays a very popular genre of Metal down in Germany, Mittelalter Metal or Medieval Metal, call it what you want, is basically Folk Metal with medieval instruments, and for all of you ignorant people, this is NOT Rammstein with bag pipes!
Ok, so no big progression in this album, but still this is good music, don't be fooled by all the negative comments, In Extremo might not be the thriving Folk force they used to be, but they got their style and no one can deny that, songs are catchy with a wide array of instruments for each one, vocals are catchy also (even though I don't understand squat of German).
Songs like "Raue See", "Poc Vecem", "Wessebronner Gebet" and "Fontaine La Jolie" will make the delights for the fans of the band and Folk Metal in general.
Some thing is certain here, this album has a lot of good songs, much better than their previous, almost every song in the album has its own charm.
So I got good news and bad news for everyone.
For the bad news, In Extremo still plays Folk Metal in the vein of their latest albums, no big progression or significant changes in their work.
For some good news, this is a much better album than their previous one, songs are catchier and the whole presentation is awesome.
If it's your first try with In Extremo, you might want to listen their older albums, but if you want a peek at the new In Extremo, this is the album for you. Totally recommended.
