Артист: Mekong Delta Название: In A Mirror Darkly Жанр: Thrash Год выхода: 2014 Label: SteamHammer/SPV / SPV 266032 CD О музыке:
Mekong Delta is a German progressive/thrash metal band, formed in 1985.
The band was founded by a group of German metal musicians with the goal to 'musically outshine' all then-current, independent releases. The
line-up and the history of the group was to be "the best kept secret in the world". The project participants decide to keep everything about the band
a secret, assuming German musicians would not be accepted internationally. The initial name "Zardoz" was rejected, followed by the acceptance of the
name "Mekong Delta", named after a riverbed in Vietnam. The entire project was started by Ralf Hubert, sound-engineer for Warlock, Steeler and Living
Death, and owner of the record label Aaarrg Music.
The first demos are recorded with the following line-up:
Jochen Schrder (ex-Rage) – guitar
Peavy Wagner (Rage) – bass
Jrg Michael (ex-Rage and Paganini) – drums
Wolfgang Borgmann – vocals
Jochen Schrder did not fit in and was soon replaced by Living Death guitarists Reiner Kelch and Frank Fricke. When Wagner later left the project,
Hubert overtook the bass guitar duties. Since the band was deliberately shrouded in mystery, all participants assumed artist names and the line-up of
the debut album looked like this:
Bjrn Eklund (real name Ralf Hubert) on bass and acoustic guitar
Gordon Perkins (real name Jrg Michael) on drums and percussion
Rolf Stein (real name Frank Fricke) on guitar and backing vocals
Vincent St. Johns (real name Reiner Kelch) on guitar and backing vocals
Keil (real name Wolfgang Borgmann) on vocals
The debut album Mekong Delta was released in 1987, produced by Ralf Hubert. Due to touring duties with his current band, Jrg Michael was replaced by
Uli Kusch (using the name Patrick Duval) for the shortly thereafter following picture disc EP The Gnome.
Mekong Delta returned to the studio around new year 1987-1988, and recorded the concept album The Music of Erich Zann, with the same line-up, again
produced by Hubert. Due to, or because of, the chosen obfuscated identities the band's big breakthrough did not happen.
Reiner Kelch was replaced by Uwe Baltrusch, who used the name Mark Kaye, and at the end of 1988 Mekong Delta released the 12-inch EP Toccata, and in
the spring of 1989 The Principle of Doubt was released. Fricke then left the band to focus on other musical styles, and the group decided not to
replace him, as Baltrusch was able to play all guitar parts himself.
During this period the band composed "Rondo for Rockgroup", ultimately released as the suite "Dances of Death". While recording the album, Wolfgang
Borgmann left the band because he couldn't identify himself with the material of this album. He was replaced by the American Doug Lee, former
singer of the band Siren. This line-up finished recording the album Dances of Death (and Other Walking Shadows). The album included an arrangement of
Modest Mussorgsky's tone poem Night on Bald Mountain. After recording this album, Jrg Michael left the band and was replaced by Swiss drummer
Around this time, the self-imposed mystery surrounding the project was fading and in October 1991 they started touring parts of Europe, including the
Netherlands and Germany. The CD Live at an Exhibition was recorded on the 13 October 1991 in Germany. Guitarist Georg Syrmbos was hired to be able to
perform the songs live.
Kaleidoscope, released in 1992, contains a cover version of "Dance on a Volcano" originally by prog-rock band Genesis. The 1993 collection Classics
contains nearly all classical pieces Hubert arranged by the band. The only classical track missing on this album is "Sabre Dance", which can be found
on the previous Kaleidoscope album.
In 1994 Mekong Delta released Visions Fugitives. The compositions are somewhat similar to The Principle of Doubt and Dances of Death. The album also
contains a classically oriented, six part track.
After a two year break the band released Pictures at an Exhibition in 1996. The album contained the title piece by classical composer Modest
Mussorgski, arranged for the band. The track was included twice; the first 16 tracks are played by the band, while the last 16 tracks include the band
and orchestra. Because the album is completely instrumental, Doug is not mentioned on the album. Shortly thereafter a CD-ROM was released including
information about Mekong Delta, Modest Mussorgski and various fan-related info.
In 1997 and 1998 the first six studio albums were remixed by Erik Adam H. Grsch and Hubert and re-released. Some albums were sonically improved,
others were hardly changed. After this the band went on a long hiatus. Rumors started circulating that Hubert had fled to Greece or
Turkey, or even that he had died. At the end of 2005 Hubert was brought in contact with guitarist Peter Lake from Swedish metal formation Theory in
Practice and the project restarted. At first Peter Haas agreed to return as drummer of the project, but he later resigned. Erstwhile member Uli Kusch
stepped in as drummer. A singer was being sought after and enough material seemed to be ready for a new album. Eventually, former Crows and Wolf
Spider singer Leo Szpigiel was added to the line-up. This line-up recorded the album Lurking Fear, which was released on August 31, 2007. Due to the
busy time schedule of the members, planning tour dates became virtually impossible. Halfway through 2008, Ralf decided to look for members who were
able to tour with the band. Very soon (thanks to Uli Kusch), Alexander Landenburg was recruited as the new drummer. Martin LeMar followed soon after
to take care of the vocals. Benedict Zimniak and Erik Grsch were added as guitarists to complete the band. In 2009 plans were made to record a new
studio album with the line-up that came to be and in June 2010 Wanderer on the Edge of Time was released into the world. Also a video clip was made of
the song "King with Broken Crown". On January 29, 2014 it was announced that Mekong Delta is going the release a new album on April 25 and it will be
called In A Mirror Darkly.
