Coronatus: Secrets Of Nature

Coronatus: Secrets Of Nature
Title: Secrets Of Nature
Label: Massacre
Product Type: COMPACT DISCS

The 8th studio album of the symphonic/gothic metal outfit Coronatus offers a few novelties: For the first time ever, the band is going to release a concept album about nature mysticism, which features 9 songs in total. The album title, "Secrets Of Nature", already implies that most lyrics will be in English; 6 of the 8 original songs are indeed with English lyrics, which will most likely please the band's international fans. But Coronatus were always fond of multilingualism, and particularly of the German language. That's why you'll also find the songs "Die See" und "Tränen Des Himmels" on the album. The album is completed by the unique cover version of the medieval traditional song "Herr Mannelig", featuring the original Swedish lyrics. All original songs were written by band founder Mats Kurth, with the exception of "Dance Of The Satyr", which was written by his 17 y/o son Max. This album is almost a family affair, since Mats' wife, Kristina Jülich, has played the violin on "Secrets Of Nature". There are also some musical changes noticeable: Most songs now feature more choral parts. The band apparently focused on a catchy sound, without sounding trivial. The fantastic orchestral arrangements by Dennis Schwachhofer are once again featured on the album. He already worked with the band on the previous album "Raben I'm Herz". The previous doctrine of featuring two kinds of female vocals - a rock voice as well as a classic soprano voice - was broken by adding male vocals from time to time, which were contributed by Teddy Möhrke (Tales Of Nebelheim) - for example on "The Little People Of Iceland" and "The Hunter". The soprano parts by Carmen Lorch were complemented by vocalist Gaby Koss (ex-Haggard, Cantus Lunaris), who is now featured on a Coronatus album for the very first time. The rock voice parts are once again sung by Mareike Makosch (Sister Zero, Illuminate), who was already featured on "Terra Incognita" and "Recreatio Carminisc.)
