Coppelius “Tumult” Album Review

Filed under: Album Reviews — Tags: , , , — admin @ 2:35 pm

To the cultured listener, COPPELIUS is the name of the character you love to hate from E.T.A. Hoffman’s 1816 short story “Der Sandmann”. This short story is more than just a tale to scare young children as the father of psychoanalysis himself Dr. Sigmund Freud based his theory of the uncanny on the controversial writing. Uncanny is also the feeling you get after listening to an interesting kammermetal band named also COPPELIUS. If you’re a German speaker, the term “kammermetal” might sound like a very odd combination, de facto COPPELIUS’ music is an odd combination of calming chamber music and an intense raw metal sound by employing classical instruments such as cello, clarinet and double-bass instead of guitars and bass-guitar.
