      Funker Vogt
      "Blutzoll"

      Label: Synthetic Symphony (2010)
      Funker Vogt return with their 8th full length studio album, entitled "Blutzoll". Funker Vogt very much follow their own path with this new album, which features several variations in terms of speed and sound design. This time, the song structures themselves are obviously the most significant thing. Without the typical long sound passages, these songs are much more focussed, which gives them a lot more intensity. "Blutzoll" contains lots of catchy tunes that will be remembered right away from the first listening. In light of this, the record was named to emphasize the difference to the three latest studio releases ("Survivor", "Navigator" and "Aviator"). Funker Vogt are paying attention to the changes of the new decade, they're starting a new and more casual era here.
      The lyrical side of "Blutzoll" also reflects this change of outlook. Although, war and its consequences are present again, there are a lot of songs that don't cover this theme and are about personal experiences and fictional scenarios. "Arising Hero", the current single release (available digitally only), presents the final part of the "Hero" trilogy. This single, being the conclusion of the previous singles "Tragic Hero" and "Fallen Hero", completes the trilogy in a graceful way. The chapter is now closed. To sum it all up, one could say that "Blutzoll" is a compact, but at the same time, a very complex album.
