Urfaust - Teufelsgeist

Urfaust have always been dark, weird and meditative. This new offering, Teufelsgeist (Literally translating to "Devils Spirit" is an extension on that. The record documents the experience of being intoxicated, starting out almost euphoric and then ending somewhere terrible and scary. It really shows the breadth of what Urfaust are capable of and thrills the listener with an execution that is wonderfully broad and ambitious in scope. Teufelsgeist may only clock in at 34 minutes, but it is one of Urfaust's deepest works to date. 

Perhaps more 'vibey' than any of the bands previous material, there is still something to be said for the simple poetry of the execution here. It always is exciting for me to remember just how good this band is and just how much they bring to the table. Teufelsgeist impresses because of how much Urfaust are able to bring to the table here. This is an album that sees the band going above and beyond what we might have expected from them. It's not just a step up, it's a move that reminds us  just how potent and beautiful the band can be at their finest. Now as they prepare to release it on the legendary Van Records many of us just have to bend the knee. 

Teufelsgeist unfolds almost like a piece of classical music and it is such a delight to hear it play out. There is simply so much to unpack and the simple elegance of what they do can't help but to leave listeners enamored. Emotionally deep and completely willing to face some of the darkest sides of the human experience, Urfaust have once more gone above and beyond. Operatic, powerful, weirdly poetic. These are the elements that have defined the bands career and which once more come to the fore on Teufelsgeist. Drink deep from the well my friends. There are few like it.
