about

On a Friday in September many years ago three girls went into a large forest in northern Germany. They never returned. Apoptose followed their path into the woods and listened closely to the voices whispering among the trees. The new album »Bannwald« reflects the girls' journey to a realm of witchcraft, fairy-tales and ancient goddesses. Here in the green twilight of rustling leafs and crackling twigs nothing is as it seems and reality is covered by a thick layer of autumn foliage. The German term »Bannwald« bears a double meaning: On one hand it stands for a protected woodland where nobody is allowed to cut trees or even to enter. On the other hand »Bann« is an ancient word for ban or spell. After the urban nightmares of the last CD »Schattenmädchen« Apoptose come back to the northern wilderness once more - the home of their very first album »Nordland«. This time with extended lineup: Those who had the chance to attend one of the rare live performances already know the voice of singer Silke and the enormous rhythms of the 15 drummers of the Fanfarenzug Leipzig. On »Bannwald« they join forces again to invoke the spirits of moss-covered stones and hidden glades.
