Review: Rainer Landfermann – Mein Wort in Deiner Dunkelheit

This is the album that made me fall in love with Black Metal. Sorry for being late to the party… but I was listening to Rainer Landfermann.

The first thing to mention is how original this music is, specifically the duck-and-dodge guitar and dramatic vocal flare on the first two tracks, smoothly poetic “Langsam, hinters Licht” and the destructive hellfire that is “Kunstvoll.” Check out the two below to get a taste of what Mein Wort in Deiner Dunkelheit has to offer.

Both of these tracks have a thunderous approach vocally, but the difference between the pair is sonically diverse, with “Langsam, hinters Licht” bringing a certain kind of lofi mix of avant-garde metal I truly have never heard before. The drums on “Kunstvoll” are supremely fun, with Michael Pelkowsky hammering home the tempo at a breakneck speed against Landfermann’s enchantingly dark vocals. Every sound has a purpose on this album.


The German album title translates to “My word in your darkness,” and with a title like this, the album contains so much self-introspection, mental awareness, and the grandiose meaning of finding “true beauty.”

So far, Rainer Landfermann’s Mein Wort in Deiner Dunkelheit is the best album I’ve heard all year.
