Biography

Wolfsheim was formed in 1987 by the brothers Markus and Olli Reinhardt, and Pompejo Ricciardi. The name wasn't taken from the city in the Rheinland-Pfalz, but from none other than Scott Fritzgerald's novel, The Great Gatsby. They recorded a demo tape and three months later Ricciardi left the band, to be replaced by Peter Heppner. Heppner, who was recommended by Ricciardi, already knew ...

'Casting Shadows' is the only CD you'll ever need to buy in this genre. In fact, it may be the only album you'll need to buy ever - it hasn't been out of my CD player since last summer. Everything else seems just a bit lacklustre and ordinary once you try the most slick and first time user-friendly offering from this duo.
When I listen to other bands now, they remind me with every second the genre that they are located in. Wolfsheim broke the mould by being timeless due to the unique pitch of their singer's voice.
This latest album achieves perfection for the band, by experiments that turned out perfectly, honing their earlier synthy sound with outstanding production and a little classical and guitar-driven inspiration on occasion.

The highlights of the album are "Find You're Gone" (80s style radio-friendly synthpop single), "Approaching Lightspeed" (euphoric pop, though pop is too flimsy a word for the voice here, making this song sound like it should be the star of a modern opera) and "Kein Zuruck" is just a gentle German giant, reminding us that the English music world doesn't have the monopoly on beautifully-crafted ballads.
"I Won't Believe" is another one of the many songs on this album that grow on you, from a delicate electronic beginning to a bit of a guitar-celebrating climax by the end. You can almost imagine it being chosen at the title for some American TV show marketed around the world, propelling Wolfsheim into a deserved international household name.
I first heard Peter Heppner (the voice of Wolfsheim) guesting on a summer dance track, while I was in Romania. His voice haunted me all the months I was there.

Finally shedding their old goth image, Wolfsheim have been steadily producing better albums recently. Their previous album 'Spectators' showed that they were getting their act together, but even the material on that album was patchy.
It's a different story with this album though. Gone are the harsh tones, replaced by lush synth tones and smooth electronics. Not only that though but the lyrics are of a much higher standard too. Now the accent of lead singer when he sings in English may be hard to get used to for first time listeners, but stick with it, he's a great singer.
The music is a mix between quality euro-pop (which is rare) and EBM, hard dance music.
Some of the intros to the songs on here are simply breathtaking, most notably 'Care for You' with it's tinkling electronics and 'I Won't Believe'. There is the odd poor track ('Kein Zurueck', 'And I'), but I never said this album was perfect. But you can pick around them and in truth, this is an album to be enjoyed.
'Find You're Gone' is pure 80's style power synth-pop, 'This is for Love' is a wonderful, very warm sounding song, and 'Wundervoll' shows they can do it in the clubs also, music-wise.

Came across Wolfsheim by accident and liked the sound of Kein Zuruck so bought this album. Songs mostly in English and quite unique. I'd rate some tracks better than others but overall this is a great album. I'm a fan of electro pop and Germany has produced some very good exponents of the genre. Since buying Casting Shadows it's grown on me even more and I listen a lot.
