EUROPAWEITE AUSSICHTEN - The Entire New Album Available For Streaming

Europaweite Aussichten, a mysterious dark synthwave/electronic one-man project run by Sam Freissler, released earlier this year a new album entitled Welcome To Paradise via small underground label Werkstatt Recordings (you can get it at this location). Here's an exclusive comment that Sam gave to us: "The work on Welcome To Paradise started in the middle of 2014, just a few months after I finished my previous album The Lucifer Project. Unlike The Lucifer Project, which was supposed to sound as raw and unpolished as possible, I intended to make the successor something that is completely different. I'm thrilled by a wide variety of electronic music, so I happen to be pretty undetermined when I get to do a new project. While working on The Lucifer Project, I almost exclusively listened to Boards Of Canada. However, during Welcome To Paradise it has only been modern synthwave like Perturbator, Mega Drive, Highway Superstar and so on. The website New Retro Wave made three awesome compilations of current synthwave-artists. Welcome To Paradise definitely became my synthwave-record with a twist. Since I'm mostly influenced by movie scores of the 80s, my music turned more subtle and quiet. I've also been a huge fan of monotonous music. Some may hate that, but I love it. John Carpenter’s soundtracks are great examples. It's always remarkable to see how few is actually needed to create an outstanding atmosphere. Often, a few notes are enough. John Carpenter understood this like no one else did. His music utilizes monotony and simple melodies in a way that really carries you away. In my opinion, monotonous music grants the mind much more space to tell itself thrilling imaginary adventures. The same applies to the music of Tangerine Dream. There is no concept or story behind Welcome To Paradise. It's more like a collection of movie-themes with every single one having its unique atmosphere. The tracks "Welcome To Paradise", "Cold Life" or "Stargazer Rising" all have a sci-fi-feeling to them, while "Please, Don’t Remove The Blood", "Days Of Death" or "Viciously Evil" are more into the horror-genre. Fun-fact: "Days Of Death" is a hommage to the amazing opening-scene in George A. Romero’s Day of the Dead and the fantastic score by John Harrison." Now, we are offering you the full-stream of the Europaweite Aussichten's new album in the Soundcloud player below. Enjoy! Link
