german hard music is so hard and german

A project for a t-shirt print for the Eisbrecher show (not official, of course - just for my friends and me to show off a bit)). The song I’m quoting here is so bloody badass, that I’ve been craving to design something like this for AGES (as you can see from the ribcage, I started developing it at the same time with “This Is My Design” one))).

Thymian & Rosmairin - Faun

Sagt ihm, er müsste ein Seidenhemd nähen
Tell him he must sew a silk shirt
Tymian ist da und auch Rosmarin
Thyme is there and also Rosemary
Ohne das Hemd mit dem Garn zu berühren
Without touching the shirt with the thread
Nur so kann er seine Liebste sehen
That’s the only way he can see his beloved

Gehst du heute hinunter zum See?
Are you going down to the lake today?
Thymian ist da und auch Rosmarin
Thyme is there and also Rosemary
Grüß das Mädchen vom Ufer von mir
Greet the girl from the coast for me
Sie war meine Liebste, doch ich musste ziehen
She was my beloved, but I had to leave

Sagt ihm, er soll auf der Lichtung stehen
Tell him to stand in the clearing
Thymian ist da und auch Rosmarin
Thyme is there and also Rosemary
Mit Kraft zwischen Ufer und Wellen bestehen
Survive with the strength between the shore and waves
Nur so kann er seine Liebste sehen
That’s the only way he can see his beloved

Er müsste das Land mit Pfefferkorn säen
He must sew the land with peppercorns
Thymian ist da und auch Rosmarin
Thyme is there and also Rosemary
Und die Ernte mit Seilen aus Heidekraut schnüren
And tie the harvest with ropes of heather
Nur so kann er seine Liebste sehen
That’s the only way he can see his beloved

You may believe it or not, but THIS IS A CHRISTMAS CAROL. One of the most beautiful ones I’ve heard so far. Don’t be fooled by scary deep vocal, if you haven’t heard this before; listen up to the chorus.
It’s the HYMN. It’s what Christmas should sound like.

Since my life is becoming more and more like a total madhouse and my art PC is still broken, I’m going to share something that does look fine to me. Namely - some of the shots from the recent Moscow Eisbrecher gig. I might not be entirely satisfied with the quality of the shots (there was too much smoke to take clearer photos, so I blame my bad eyesight for the unfocused and noisy parts), but it is safe to say that this show was the best thing that happened to me in ages.
Those are lovely and talented and funny professionals, who are clearly in love with what they’re doing.

I mean, just LISTEN TO THIS.

Also: their band manager Chrissy Schneider is something so cute I’m having difficulties describing him.
Also: their lead singer Alexx Wesselsky is basically some sort of a huge German Cecil Baldwin, which is incredibly endearing.))
Also: their composer and lead guitar player Noel Pix only seems small and fragile, while being a sly huggable cat :3
Add here the Russian guy Gosha who is apparently a hero now (because he dared to greet the band via playing one of their songs on his Russian accordion, which just cracks me up every time I recall this moment))), some disco music as a way to warm the audience up, and the fact that their lead singer is hiding some serious comic artist talent - at least, my marine captain’s hat is now decorated in his drawings)))

P.S.: …oh, and yeah, that’s a riding crop in there. Herr Wesselsky called the guy who helped him with additional stuff like this ‘Dodo’. As in: “Oh, look, Dodo’s got something for us again!”)))
P.P.S.:
 …AND I CAN WRITE ONLY IN CAPS ABOUT THEIR SONG “AMOK” IN LIVE VERSION.
