Following the release of their critically-adored, Nuclear Sun long player, Barcelona-based darkwave project, DER BLAUE REITER, returns from the pillars of oblivion with a new collection of mirthless hymns centered on post-apocalyptic desolation.
Titled Le Paradis Funèbre II – L’ Adieu Du Silence, the stunning, near hour-long opus boasts eleven haunting compositions inspired by a tragic vision of a world governed by secret societies, warfare, disease and the last days of mankind. Considered to be the second chapter of DER BLAUE REITER‘s 2004 debut, L’enver Du Tristesse/Le Paradis Funebre, each of the record’s deliberately discomforting movements is rife with compelling orchestrations, cinematic soundscapes and majestic industrial and martial ambience. Le Paradis Funèbre II – L’ Adieu Du Silence was mastered by Peter Bjärgö (Sophia/Arcana), features collaborations with Alina (Lamia Vox), Cecilia Bjärgö (Arcana/Sophia) and Daniela Bedeski (Rosa Rubea) and serves as the project’s darkest creation to date, where light is just a rumor, and the future a legend.

Founded in 2005, DER BLAUE REITER is a Catalan music project that fuses apocalyptic ambiance with neoclassical passages and militarist percussion. Their compositions function as chillingly poignant soundtracks to a post-nuclear, diseased world wriggling beneath the weight of its own self-inflicted suffering and looming demise, with Le Paradis Funèbre II – L’ Adieu Du Silence chronicling humanity’s final days.
