According to the press release for Laster’s Wijsgeer & Narreman (yeah, I don’t know how to say it either), the album has “hypnotic riffs inspired by J.W. von Goethe’s ‘Faust'”. Now, I’ve never read ‘Faust’, but to my understanding the basic premise is about a guy who makes a deal with the devil. You know, standard black metal stuff.

Germany’s Dunkelheit Produktionen will release Wijsgeer & Narreman from Dutch Black Metal act Laster. Atmospheric black metal with hypnotic riffs and inspired by J.W. von Goethe’s Faust, Wijsgeer & Narreman will be released on MCD (August 1st) and Cassette format (June 1st). Laster (meaning libel) was founded and located in Utrecht, the Netherlands. The band consists of N. (Northward) and W. Damiaen (Omninihilist, Sea of Trees, Willoows, Whtie Oak). Wijsgeer & Narreman is recommended for fans of Urfaust and Austere.
