04/12/2014, Peter HESELMANS

With the new single Asche Zu Asche (Dust To Dust), Blutengel is back. After Constance Rudert left the band, I had the impression that Blutengel was bleeding to death. Chris Pohl was mainly busy with his other projects like Terminal Choice and the latest Blutengel-tracks were nothing special.

This track however is great, it's powerful, melodic and certainly a club floor filler. Chris Pohl is back! This single is a classic Blutengel track from the early days, but with some modernized arrangements. A perfect fusion of the past, present and future. The Blutengel fans of the early days will definitely be very happy with Asche Zu Asche, tracks like Der Spiegel or Schneekoningin come back to my mind. Chris Pohl pays tribute to his own roots; danceable electronic beats with his dark and distorted vocals deliver this great track.

I’m not so euphoric about the extras on this EP as they are not on the same level as the original, it all sounds a bit chaotic and simple, some bass and rhythm samples are added, but certainly not comparable with the original.

This CD (also available on vinyl) is a small appetizer for the upcoming Blutengel full album called Omen and a kick off for more surprises and celebrations that will come for the band’s 15th anniversary.
