Heimataerde has re-defined the art of German electro with it's blending of beat, chant and the clever use of bagpipe. This shows in the Leben album, originally slated to be released as two 6-track EPs. Thankfully we get this in one fantastic cd, spilling over with the latin and German vocals and the hypnotizing melodies. Der Eid is a short, haunting piece, followed by Arca memoriae, in which the Pater Noster is repeated throughout. This is a must-have, as is any Heimataerde cd, for the fans of industrial who want something outside the typical dance-floor box.
