While the German neofolk was in it’s early days, the year 2001 saw the foundation of the German neofolk-duo :werra:, whose official debut album was released only much later, due to various problems. Their songs reveal the spirit of early German neofolk – ie = a return to the traditions of our ancestors as well as the search for an own cultural identity and the longing for a new, and hopefully better world. Musically and conceptionally, :werra: can be seen in the same context that characterized the early releases of Forseti and Darkwood.
Six years after their debut “MMI-MMV” Werra returns with a full-length album that is interconnected by the motive of the wind of change. The album is comprised of catchy tunes, driving melodies and dreamy songs. It stands in the tradition of its predecessor with both original lyrics and traditional poetry set to music. The band – bring new accents to traditional Neofolk. Especially the accordion adds more dynamic and depth while preserving the distinctive :werra: sound.
