::OT:: DESIDERAT

DESIDERAT
Danse Macabre, 2014 Titles: 11 - Total running time: 44:00

Minimal-Electro with pumping basslines and lashing drums come up against the apocalyptic lyrics of Bettina Bormann. After the minimalistic debut "10 Grad vor OT" (2008, 10 Degrees before TDC), the cynical successor "Erde ruft" (Ground calls, 2009) and the bizarre "Stiller Zoo" (2010, Silent Zoo) now follows with "Desiderat" the fourth album of the German Electro-Duo Oberer Totpunkt: Musically more aggressive than the previous, merciless in the word world - cutting, disturbing.

::OT:: STILLER ZOO (SILENT ZOO)

STILLER ZOO (SILENT ZOO)
Dance Macabre, 2010 Titles: 12 - Total running time: 46:23

Myths, fairy tales, legends or stories from the bible have something in common – they have been written by humans, who wanted to impart something: alignment and truth, the attempt to order chaos and declare significance to arbitrariness. Stories help us to channel fears. (mehr)


::OT:: ERDE RUFT (GROUND CALLS)

ERDE RUFT (GROUND CALLS)
Danse Macabre, 2009 Titles: 11 - Total running time: 50:02

Time’s running out, time’s getting short – ground calls... Seize the day, which they call life; it is all we have... The album follows the circle from birth, wrong life, madness and boast, up to death as a trans-formation, as result of persecution, oppression and inequity, proscribed suicide and at last the moment of dying itself. The hymn of armageddon (dies irae, day of anger) fulfills the circle. (mehr)


::OT:: 10 GRAD VOR OT (10 DEGREES BEFORE TDC)

10 GRAD VOR OT (10 DEGREES BEFORE TDC)
Danse Macabre, 2008 Titles: 10 - Total running time: 54:40

10 GRAD VOR OT” (10 DEGREES BEFORE TOP DEAD CENTER) are ten moments before the chemical reaction. The deep black stories tell about the discrepancy between exterior and interior „reality“, about love, that is so consumptive, that it allows no compromises, about women, who love to death. They tell about fear, that attends a life long, about gluttony, the loss of sense, the loss of ideals. They tell about the things, people believe in, about elapsing lifetime, about dreams that become a farce... In the stories of ::OT:: everything turns on collective nightmares. (mehr)

::OT:: Das Fluestern der Moerdermuscheln

Das Fluestern der Moerdermuscheln
PaperOne, 2012 Titles: 0 - Total running time: 38 Kurzgeschichten, 250 Seiten

Natürlich flüstern Mördermuscheln nicht, sondern sie filtern Nahrung aus dem Meer. Aber es sieht ein bisschen so aus. Wenn man ein wenig die Augen zusammenkneift, so dass die Gerade der Wahrnehmung eine leichte Delle bekommt. Und wer ganz genau lauscht, kann ihr Wispern hören. Nichts ist so, wie es zu sein scheint. Im Kurzgeschichtenband „Das Flüstern der Mördermuscheln“ ist es also wie im wirklichen Leben. Das Grauen sieht von außen betrachtet eigentlich ganz nett aus. 38 makabre und unheimliche Geschichten, teilweise phantastisch und absurd, teilweise beängstigend realistisch, mal satirisch, mal mit tödlichem Ernst.  (mehr)
