Therefore, almost anything they put out will get some automatic cred from me. Der Überlebende — 7:38 5. Its companion piece - Meisterwerk 2 - was released the following year.
The album was considered to be a landmark creative development in the hybridization of death-doom and Gothic metal but most of all cranked out an incredible plodding collection of orchestrated metal masterpieces with the longer tracks such as the transcendental 'The Crown Of Sympathy' stealing the show with its innovative progressive meanderings through different musical segments and stylistic juxtapositions.
