On 8 June 2017 LAIBACH announced new album "Also Sprach Zarathustra" to be released 14 July 2017 along with the lead single "Das Nachtlied I" and an accompanying tour. The songs on the album were originally composed for a theatrical production of Thus Spoke Zarathustra, based on Friedrich Nietzsche’s novel of the same name.
LAIBACH (Slovene pronunciation: [ˈlájbax]) is a Slovenian avant-garde music group associated with the industrial, martial, and neo-classical genres. Formed in Trbovlje (at the time in Yugoslavia) in 1980, LAIBACH represents the musical wing of the Neue Slowenische Kunst (NSK) collective, a group which LAIBACH helped found in 1984. The name "Laibach" is the German name for the Slovenian capital Ljubljana (which was unwelcome in Tito's Yugoslavia).
Richard Wolfson wrote of the group:
LAIBACH method is extremely simple, effective and horribly open to misinterpretation. First of all, they absorb the mannerisms of the enemy, adopting all the seductive trappings and symbols of state power, and then they exaggerate everything to the edge of parody... Next they turn their focus to highly charged issues — the West's fear of immigrants from Eastern Europe, the power games of the EU, the analogies between Western democracy and totalitarianism.
Today’s tune "Vor Sonnen-Aufgang” is taken from new album "Also Sprach Zarathustra”, enjoy! The Video was directed by MICHAEL SAUP and Produced by ANDREAS ERHART
