Product Description

A defining album, Wall of Sacrifice is a mixture of folk melodic pieces and futher expanded epic industrialized soundscape tracks, like the 16 minute long title track, along with some 'Might is Right' rantings from icon destroyer Boyd Rice on the track 'Bring in the Night'. Other guests of course include David Tibet and Rose McDowall, at this time major contributors to Douglas Pearce's incarnation. Wall of Sacrifice is probably one of the most important Death In June recordings due to the diversity and uniqueness on rich display. Images and visions of German warriors marching proudly and triumphantly over the Nordland, as well as the entire war victory atmosphere make this a stirring and majestic recording of might and power, especially on the final nine minute track 'Death is a Drummer'. Highly recommended, this is one of my favorite releases from DIJ and marks a glorious end to a era of experimentation before moving into more folk oriented material. World Serpent. 2006.

Format: Audio CD
This album withstand any attempt to limit it with categorization. Of all DI6's work thus far, this one is essential to put me into a most sinister mood. It is dark and pretty. It is achingly sound aesthetically. The mood is militaristic and liturgical. Perfect for a sacrifice, actually.
There are two very long songs that are heavily layered with various samples and instrumentation. These are "The Wall of Sacrifice", which opens the CD at 16 minutes and "Death is A Drummer", the final track on my CD, at 9 minutes. It looks as if there is an extra track on this release, "Heilige Tod".
The Players on this album are all worthy accomplices. Along with Douglas, there is Tibet, Rose McDowell, Boyd Rice, Andrea James, Nikolas Schreck and Jan O. All of these folks have done fine work--going back nearly 30 years for some.
This CD contains several of Douglas' greatest songs: "Giddy Giddy Carousel", "Fall Apart", and "Hullo Angel". It also has my personal all time favourite, "In Sacrilege" It always puts me in a right terrifying stance.
Overall, this CD has some faithfully heavy moments. It is also replete with Douglas's uncompromising poetic vision. It shimmers and decays at once. Play it for your Mother. Maybe she'll be so moved that she'll immediately go out and sign up.

I rarely hand out 5 stars, but this and "But What Ends..." so readily deserve such an honor. Just try to play this and not "fall apart."
