      Crematory's fourth album (1996).

      Re-released with the subtitle 'Das Deutsche Album,' Crematory's fourth full-length release is a self-consciously German production, from the all-German lyrics to its emphasis on Berlin-style keyboard work in the longer, ambient tracks such as creepy opener 'Utopia' and the soundtrack pieces 'Trugbilder' and 'Sehnsucht,' which sound much more accomplished than the band's earlier keyboard compositions.

      This is something of a step backwards after 'Illusions,' merely in its adoption of a more typical death-doom metal style for songs such as 'Das Licht in dir,' reminiscent of My Dying Bride in its sombre lead guitars but with the incessantly catchy rhythm of Katatonia. The album also disappoints by throwing out a very obvious single in the form of 'Ist es Wahr,' led by poppy singing and an eighties-style electric piano that sounds out of place and almost offensive next to the gothic works. The growled vocals also return, which will attract or repel listeners depending on their orientation, but it's at least novel to hear them growling in German.

      1. Utopia
      2. Das Licht in dir
      3. Flieg' mit mir
      4. Ist es Wahr
      5. Ewigkeit
      6. Trugbilder
      7. Flammen
      8. Die Suche
      9. Illusionen
      10. Sehnsucht
