More Info

"Tiffauges" is the latest release from Hermann Kopp. It's a meeting between a man of excess and an experimental musician. This is the story of medieval knight, lord and Marshal Of France Gilles de Rais, told musically by Hermann Kopp. Rais was a companion of Joan Of Arc during the Hundred Years' War, but was best known for his reputation as an occultist and is allegedly the first recorded serial killer. He was executed by hanging for murdering hundreds of children whilst attempting to summon demons and is the inspiration for the legend of Blue Beard. He resided at Chteau de Tiffauges, which is also known as Chteau de Barbe-Bleue. "Tiffauges" is pure melancholy in the form of an experimental medieval soundtrack. Hermann Kopp is best known for his scores to Jrg Buttgereit's cult films "Nekromantik", "Nekromantik 2", and "Der Todesking". Mastered by Frederic Alstadt at Angstrm studios. Ltd x 200 copies with cover
