Musik Aus Dem Schattenreich is the first LP of Peter Frohmader under the project-name Nekropolis after some self-published tapes. A look at the sinister cover and the title tells all. It means "Music From the Darklands" in English; "Fegefeuer" (Purgatory) and "Unendliche Qual" (Endless Pain) are only two song titles. The music is a unique mixture of ghostly sounding electronics, percussion, and bass guitars. Frohmader's intention is to describe the realm of the dead with musical means and he succeeds. The album creates a very dark and disturbing atmosphere and sounds like the screams of lost souls in Hell.
