In the beginning of 2020 the idea was born to create a band-project continuing the tradition of New German Death Art / Neue Deutsche Todeskunst, what was rising in the end of the 1980s – beginning of 1990s, specially in southern Germany.

A German and a Greek artist came together and founded SCHATTEN MUSE.

As a part of our art, we decided to cover a song by Goethes Erben, a “leader band” of this genre from past days. All lyrics are in German language and as a bonus track we decide to record another cover with English lyrics but in this kind of style.

We have created 7 songs in this kind of old-school style, various in music and lyrics with dramatised and theatrical narration! From deep depressive, desperate, dark and melancholic to wistful, longing, and desireful, what we recorded in early summer 2021 in Greece.

German-Greek conspiracy Schatten Muse have just released their debut album “Vergänglichkeit” via The Circle Music.

Influenced by electronic underground sounds of the 1980s and 1990s, Schatten Muse is a duet consisting of Shelmerdine and Sylvia Fürst.

On “Vergänglichkeit” Schatten Muse give a new breath of life to the Neue Deutsche Todeskunst (New German Death Art) movement. With poetic lyrics about madness, desperation and isolation, Schatten Muse combine elements of dark wave, gothic, neoclassical and electro wave, all filtered through their personal prism and poetic mood along with dramatised and theatrical narration.

“Muse” (all vocals, lyrics) – Sylvia F./S.

“Schatten” (all music) – Shelmerdine (Dark Awake).
