|MARS The Seeker CD. Digipak
With two albums ("Sons of Cain" and "Blood is the Food of the Gods"), one vinyl EP ("Sacrifice"), one 7” ("Farewell to the Sun") and an epic soundtrack-like collaboration (Mars Presents the Trail), the German Pagan folk duo Mars has created its very own and unique sound that lies somewhere between apocalyptic folk and darkest Americana. The album The Seeker is about the spiritual quest of the seekers of true knowledge. This cycle of 12 songs sheds light on different aspects of the pagan world, ranging from the ritualistic via the mythic towards the existentialistic. With their powerful acoustic approach Oliver Freund and Marcus Stiglegger create chants of hope and despair facing an increasingly profane world.
