Ever since their brilliant first cd of 1998, Orplid has been one of my favourite bands. After quite a long wait came some vinyl and a mcd (some even released before I started these pages, the debut originally as well) all very good, but not as good as the debut cd. The same goes for “Nächtliche Jünger”. This new cd is much more tranquil than previous releases and only at the end there are some industrial influences and darker material. Also the songs aren’t as ‘victorious’ as they used to be anymore. What remains are beautiful modest songs with acoustic guitars and singing or electronic music and singing. A very nice cd again of this German band.
