“‘The White Goddess’ is a triumph of heaviness and melancholy, a monument to the spirit of underground metal and the mythology of old Europe.“, says drummer Weiss. „Our sound has grown darker and heavier, like the world has grown darker and heavier in the past few years. At the same time our 70s roots and our love for Bathory and old Manowar are still there. Imagine Quorthon raping Uriah Heep while ,Into Glory ride‘ is blasting from an old tapedeck“, adds guitar player Trummer.
Indeed the band has progressed much since their debut effort „The Golden Bough“. The sound is more mature, more dramatic, more bombastic. Everything on the album spells HUGE in capital letters. While the key coordinates old Manowar (Ross the Boss-era), Bathory (Twilight-era) and obscure US Metal (Fates Warning, Cirith Ungol, Warlord…) are still dominant, the band has manage to explore new ground with „The White Goddess“.
