Stimmen Der Stille- Morgenstern LP

Hi all, apologies for the delay but it’s been a bit difficult to make time for a post these days. I hope to rectify that soon. With that in mind, here’s one of my all-time favorite obscure goth/post-punk records, 1988’s Morgenstern by German band Stimmen Der Stille. Someone had requested this in the Asmodi Bizarr post, and that was the only motivation I needed to finally shell out for this one. Thanks for being a bad influence! 😉

There’s only a little information to be found about this band. Their name translates to Voices of Silence (pretty awesome). The official lineup consisted of Daniela Siemon on vocals, Thomas Stelkens on guitar, Martin Gasper on drums and Pamela Alnoch on bass. The band recorded two demos between 1985-6 and released one 12”, Kristallkugel around the same time as this LP. As one might expect, there’s a lot of similarity to Xmal Deutschland and Siouxsie and the Banshees (including a Budgie-esque breakdown on the title track), but the quality of this record is astounding. A few tracks veer into experimental soundscapes before taking hold with killer hooks and powerful vocals, so there’s plenty to love on this LP from front to back!

  2. The Axemyn Says:

    …well, actually it was me who requested this rare gem some months ago & here it is in top quality – that’s great – thanx a lot! (& concernig Bad Influence – if you’re also into the darker side of anarch@ punk / crust, i.e. the likes of Amebix, Icons Of Filth, Vex, The Smartpils, Zygote, Poison Girls, Exit-Stance, Dirt, Part 1, Violators, etc. have a listen to the belgian band of this very name – they’re great & especially in their 1990s incarnation sound pretty much like the french Ausweis in my opinion 😉 – cheers!
