AIN SOPH An Die Freude (Live In Vienna)
Ain Soph arose in Rome in the early 1980's, composing disturbing industrial-ambient soundtracks for their esoteric rituals. The music of their first tape releases is dark, frightening and evocative. In 1988 they released their first LP, the masterpiece "Kshatriya", blending neoclassical arrangements, noise and experimental sounds. At the beginning of the 1990's, Ain Soph radically changed direction, first releasing a collection of sacral-hymn songs, then exploring traditional folk music and psychedelic hard rock. The album Finis Gloriæ Mundi from 2018 added electronic beats to the Ain Soph sound. In October 2021, the band played a show with Der Blutharsch And The Infinite Church Of The Leading Hand in Vienna, during the difficult time of the Covid pandemic. Both gigs were recorded, and now Klanggalerie are very happy to present to you the Ain Soph concert in Vienna on CD. Full tracklist: 1. Datemi Pace 2. Vanita 3. Falce Svastica E Martello 4.

In An Die Freude il repertorio comprende anche alcune tracce provenienti da il disco di culto Aurora in cui gli Ain Soph scelsero consapevolmente di passare dalla magia all etica e quindi alla forma canzone.
