DEAD RAVEN CHOIR is one of the most obscure, hated, envied and enigmatic musical entities in the world. Schmerzensgewalt' is said to mark the final chapter in this bizarre and wondrous fable. Smolken, the mastermind behind both Dead Raven Choir and WOLFMANGLER, claims that he is setting his sights on pastures new and that this challenging work is to be perhaps the very final testament of the spirit of Dead Raven Choir. Equally as lo-fi and harsh as its AB released predecessor My Firstborn Will Surely Be Blind, Schmerzensgewalt shares the same ambivalence to the technologies of the modern world - "Recorded in Poland on cheap and archaic Soviet Bloc technology" - and a desire to tear songs limb from limb, note by note, before reassembling them in a crude mockery of what stood before. Particularly noteworthy this time is the inclusion of 16 year old female Polish vocalists, accompanied by their parents, to record at the eerie forest bunker that serves as Smolken's lair, their naive delivery adding new unplumbed depths to the Dead Raven Choir sound.
