the experience of jägerblut ('hunter's blood') can be described best as listening to a musical narrative, told in several parts forming a larger story of another time and place. this place is a sort of bavaria from a parallel universe infused with pagan and christian mysticism. drawing heavily from rural lore, legends of blood-covered martyrs and the inevitabilty of nature, the musicians try to find their roots within the context of modernity. the music itself ranges from whimsical folk to ritualistic versions of the local styles, not to forget the non too subtle moments of industrial sounds. daring to see comedy withinin tragedy and always wandering between sadness and exultation, the experience of jägerblut is that of the world being full of dark poetry. behave! digipak packaging w/ foil embossing and 20-page booklet.
