We’ve joined forces with Napalm Records to share Varg’s new video with you, which you can watch now below!
On their 2011 album Wolfskult the Bavarian wolf brigade known as VARG set right the rumors Brothers Grimm maliciously spread regarding Little Red Riding Hood. Contrary to the fairy tales, it was actually the wolf who was innocent, seduced by the petite wolf in sheep’s clothing, Little Red Riding Hood, and even pawned off the murder of her grandmother on him, like some poor sacrificial lamb. It’s no wonder that in this explosive literary history an anthemic musical piece quickly became one of the band’s crowd favorites, compelling them to lift their Rotkäppchen onto a podium and pay it the attention it has so long deserved.
The same could be said of their new EP, which should not be overlooked as only a segue to the upcoming full length album Das Ende aller Lügen. Rotkäppchen is rather a gem on its own. It is a magical interlude, which has some treasures hidden between his precious DIN A5-pages: between the classic version from 2011 and an instrumental karaoke-version you’ll find a version both in English (feat Christopher Bows of ALESTORM) and Norwegian (feat TROLLFEST), as well as a recent re-recording that, like on the original, features Anna Murphy of ELUVEITIE. The EP includes two brand-new songs ‘Ein Tag Wie Heute’ (featuring Dom R. Crey of EQUILIBRIUM) and ‘Abendrot’, which won’t be found on ‘Das Ende aller Lügen’.
The release will be unleashed on October 9th via Napalm Records and is available as limited edition deluxe DIN A5 mediabook with 24 pages and includes following tracks:
1. Rotkäppchen 2015
2. Ein Tag wie heute
4. Red Riding Hood
6. Rotkäppchen 2011
7. Rotkäppchen 2015 Karaoke
