Artist Listing: A - F G - R S - Z

Line-up: Dieter Bornschlegel, aka bornzero

Dein Schatten is a new project by a guy named Dieter Bornschlegel, who I believe is active in the German music scene for about three decades now. In this period he played in numerous bands, and he has tried about every musical style imagineable. This new project aims at a place in the EBM/gothic crossover scene, somewhere between Rammstein and Joachim Witt. The music is rather accessible, clearly meant for chart success.
The theatrical, spoken vocals (in German) are indeed Witt-like, but also make me think of the late Falco. A dramatic track like 'Trane der Seele' can't really be taken seriously. A few guitar sounds can be heard on the album, but the music is mostly electronic. Some songs rock a little more, like 'My name is Lucifa'.
