RATTENFÄNGER - New Track Streaming Online And Upcoming Album Details

New Ukrainian band Rattenfänger have signed to Norway's label Dark Essence Records and their debut album named Epistolae Obscurorum Virorum is to be expected later this year. Although this is a new band they have quite a lot of experiences behind them as members have been involved in some very well known bands before like Drudkh, Blood Of Kingu, Hate Forest and Dark Ages. As stated their music should be a must for fans of Celtic Frost, early Darkthrone, Winter, Asphyx, Bolt Thrower, Nihilist,...The name Rattenfänger is taken from the legend of the Pied Piper of Hamelin (Rattenfänger von Hameln), who was hired by the townsfolk of Hameln, Germany, to rid the town of the rats that had overrun it. Unfortunately he is deceived and cheated of his payment, and he exacts a dreadful revenge on the citizens.

Very much in keeping with the period of the legend, the lyrics for Epistolae Obscurorum Virorum are in Latin and are written in style of the medieval poets, the thinkers and the troubadours/minstrels of old. Tracklisting for Epistolae Obscurorum Virorum, which was recorded during the spring and summer of 2012 in Kharviv in the Ukraine, and produced by Rattenfänger, is as follows:
1. Coelo Affixus Sed Terris Omnibus Sparsus - intro
2. Grimorium Verum
3. Victa Lacet Virtus
4. Nunc Scio Tenebris Lux
5. Allegoria De Gula Et Luxuria
6. Clausae Patent
7. Deest Remedii Locus, Ubi, Quae Vitia Fuerunt, Mores Fiunt
8. Regno, Regnavi, Regnabo

On Soundcloud they already posted the song "Grimorium Verum" for streaming. Check it out here: Link
