"...it doesn’t take much to imagine an apocalyptic scene unfolding right before the eyes... Brach Auf creases at its blackening edges, the smoky drones congealing in the air after a seismic event. The aftermath of the fire is both terrifying and spectacular."

'Honorable mention' as one of the "best albums of the first half of 2016":
"Brach Auf" opens up a different chapter of Morgen Wurde's haunting and intense reflections on natural forces. With its intense drones and dark swirling synths, liturgical vocals, and overall cinematic electronic feel, this is a soundtrack for watching the fires burn and the embers fly!
In contrast to ambient music which is more about tranquility and unobtrusiveness, Morgen Wurde also aims for intensity and ambiguity. The emotive qualities of these ethereal sound mass compositions span the gamut from the calm to the sublime up to the mildly terrifying.
Most blissful moments come into being with Maria Estrella's elysian vocals flowing through divine drones and harmonies.
Elsewhere, disembodied spirits are in cathartic search of release, and elemental force with noisy outbursts contrasts serene passages, thus intensifying the experience.
The evocative and immersive epos is brought to its conclusion by Oliver Schmidt who added vital layers to leverage the two closing tracks to their final shape.
There is an haunting, always-already disappearing quality to this music, which adds heft to its dreaminess, and poignance to its beauty. It's also about the ability to disappear into sound, to get lost in the iridescence of timbres, or to be made whole by a consonant harmony, inviting you back again.
