From the new headquarters in Berlin, Sturmgeist proudly announces that the second album "Über" has been mastered and the European release date has been set to June, 19th, on Season of Mist. Like its predecessor "Meister Mephisto" (Season of Mist, 2005), "Über" contains a host of dramatic, down-tuned songs inspired by Germanic culture and history. As 2006 marks the 250th birthday of the Austrian composer Mozart, Sturmgeist think it appropriate to commemorate him with a heavy cover of Falco's song "Rock me Amadeus". Other track titles are "Dobermann", "Party Über Alles", "Grimanic Guerillas", and "Hindenburg". Drummer AntiChristian (Grimfist, Tsjuder) ensures the lethal pounding necessary to the Sturmgeist sound, along with new guitarist John Erik Jacobsen. "Über", recorded at TopRoom Studio in Norway, is mixed by Børge Finstad and produced by Cornelius von Jackhelln.

In related news, the third volume in Cornelius Jakhelln's "Quadra Natura" four-book poetry cycle has now hit the bookshelves in Norway. The book's full title is "Fagernorn. Quadra Natura 0111", and deals with the identity of the individual in relation to nationality and cultural heritage. Avid readers of Cornelius' lyrics in Solefald and Sturmgeist will certainly recognize the eclectic playfulness and hardcore pathos present in "Fagernorn".
