1 - OBERER TOTPUNKT - DESIDERAT - (CD) 
DANSE MACABRE


The spoken word rocks!Minimal-Electro with pumping basslines and lashing drums come up against the apocalyptic lyrics of Bettina Bormann. After the minimalistic debut "10 Grad vor OT" (2008, 10 Degrees before TDC), the cynical successor "Erde ruft" (Ground calls, 2009) and the bizarre "Stiller Zoo" (2010, Silent Zoo) nowfollows with "Desiderat" the fourth album of the German Electro-Duo Oberer Totpunkt: Musically more aggressive than the previous, merciless in the word world - cutting, disturbing.Desired and hoped for. Truth and reality.What value have all our wishes and tendons? Whats tje desire of our acts and omissions? What ist the goal of our life dreams and our aspirations in the context of our finitude? The thought of the finiteness should not paralyze us nor disturb. However, it should make people aware that we have no time to waste. So we filter more carefully the goals that have been given to us only from the outside, and deliver us from longings. So like the Desiderata by Max Ehrmann based on real and sincere way, the album analyzed "desideratum" the discomfort - and:encourages to more happiness..

2 - OBERER TOTPUNKT - NEUROSEN BLUHEN - (CD) 
DANSE MACABRE


Be afraid! Anxiety disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, borderline psychosis, burn-out, depressions, sozial phobia, escape into religion or illusion - the structures which cristallize on the (psychic) iceberg below the surface have many faces. Neurosis is social norm for a while. Whyelse should we accept damaged characters in leading positions? And why else should we condone a system, which benefits a minority for sawing the branch slowly but surely on which the majority is sitting? The proportion between anxiety and lust is like an addiction. Caught between fascination andparalysis we follow how rat catcher and fire raiser scrimmage in our center. As it is proven that the world is much crazier as we thought, we state: neurosis bloom! And while the passengers of the not sinkable Titanic were tipsy from champagne, we are drunk from our own adrenalin - and watchas disbelieving as those, how our ship drifts to the iceberg.

3 - OBERER TOTPUNKT - STILLER ZOO - (CD) 
DANSE MACABRE


The third album of ::OT:: Oberer Totpunkt called "Silent Zoo",leads into a world with fairy tale elements, but presence is immanent, as each moment tends its finitude. Anythingwhich seems so meaningful to us, is only important in a very narrow coordinate system. Eternity brings calmness tothe run of events... were all "captured in the past", in our zoo of the stuffed animals. Because: "In the long run weall are dead" (John Maynard Keynes)

4 - OBERER TOTPUNKT - TOTENTANZ - (CD) 
DANSE MACABRE


From the cradle to the wreath we dance the dance of death" - from our birth we sway in a round dance in the armsof death. But we're definitely not going to go down without a song, but with a storm of drums, that's what the sixthalbum by the band ::OT:: Oberer Totpunkt is all aboutWhen deepest fears come true, we look down the abyss of our worst nightmares. In their sixth album, TOTENTANZ,the band ::OT:: Oberer Totpunkt deals with the demons in us and around us in lyrics full of dark poetry and beatssuitable for the dance floor - real and imagined, visible and invisible, demons of the past and the present . It's aboutgrief, loneliness, being lost, appearance instead of being, final farewells, ebbing life, illusions. The demons are alwaysthere, even - or especially - when we don't see them. Let's dance away the fear! Dance the dance of death with us!In terms of content, the album alternates between martial lyrics and melancholic, thoughtful tones, electronic tracksalternate with drum fireworks and rock guitars. The album leads the audience through an acoustic choreography:from the thunderous impact to dark-romantic pieces to dancefloor beats and the jazzy finale. As usual, the band'spoetic language hits the pitch black. With the new album, TOTENTANZ, ::OT:: presents a new work of their oeuvreand, as always, goes their own way. Only ::OT:: dares to do something like that
