Common Prayers

Death Letters

Common Prayers

LabelRedfield Records
VertriebAlive
VÖ-Datum22.2.2013

Wie ein Chamäleon verhalten sich Death Letters gelegentlich. Schon der Opener Common Prayers des gleich betitelten Albums zeigt es. Das was hier zu hören ist, könnte von jeder beliebigen Folkpop-Band kommen. Death Letters also als Alternative zu den Villagers? Falscher kann man nicht liegen! Das merkt, wer die zwei Minuten übersteht und in das mitreißende We Chant Arythmically eintaucht. Das ist nämlich allerfeinster Post-Hardcore-Pop, wie man ihn vielleicht zuletzt auf dem Debütalbum von Sparta, dieser mittlerweile fast vergessenen Post-At The Drive-in-Band, gehört hat.

Doch damit nicht genug: Death Letters sind vielseitig. Sehr vielseitig. Das soll wohl schon das Cover von Common Prayers, das ein braves und ein schreiendes Gesicht ziert, zeigen. Klingt natürlich ein bisschen nach Holzhammer-Rhetorik und ist sicher nicht so cool, wie die abstrakten Zeichnungen beispielsweise auf Hot Water Music-Alben. Aber hier geht es ja nicht um das Cover und was für Bücher gilt, gilt für Musik erst recht: Man soll sie nach eben jenem nicht beurteilen.

Und unvoreingenommene Seelen bekommen hier tatsächlich über 42 Minuten ziemlich gute Unterhaltung zwischen den bereits erwähnten Bands und Künstlern wie Coheed And Cambria und Aereogramme, also alles was Rang und Namen hat und schon einmal mehr als ein Element in seine Alben eingebaut hat. Da macht es auch gar nicht so viel, dass Common Prayers hin und wieder etwas zu stark zwischen den Extremen springt und der ein oder andere Song nicht ganz so stark geraten ist. Death Letters könnten dem Post-Hardcore-Punk-Pop wieder einen frischen Wind einhauchen.
