Don't know why this album,which safely can be called a classic by now, wasn't posted on my blog before. Das Ich are one of the longest-running bands on the German "Schwarze Szene", but this particular album contributed probably the most to their popularity here (even me, who rarely attend concerts, have been to their live show at one of the ForGotTen festivals a few years ago). Compared to their early works, it's much more "danceable" and generally accessible to an average listener, with very catchy tracks like "Schwarzer Stern", "Vulkan", or "Seele Tanzt". Absolutely recommended to all fans of dark music with lyrics in German, and especially if you're learning that language.
