Over his prolific career, Witt has released 16 albums. Starting with his breakthrough 1980 album Silberblick, containing the single " Der Goldene Reiter ", he continues to create through such highlights as his 1998 smash Bayreuth and the platinum DOM in 2012.
Witt built a particularly close connection with his fans on his last albums ICH and THRON, through a crowdfunding campaign to work independently on his distinct musical vision. This is how the latest work of the exceptional artist was created:
RUBEZAHL - melancholic, magical and dark. In collaboration with Lord Of The Lost mastermind Chris Harms as producer, RUBEZAHL is at once the gloomiest and most resplendent album in Witt's entire discography. The album is darkly romantic, moody, spirited, rigorous, proud, and powerful, moving like a musical storm across legendary mountains. Witt'Âs distinct voice and grandiose lyrics hold court throughout, be it over menacing synthesizer sounds and brute guitars, or a delicate romantic ballad such as Mein Diamant or through a wall of sound and textures on Ich Will Leben and the grand-scale production of Quo Vadis.
With themes of legend, songs of demons, giants, mountain spirits, and romantic naturalism, RUBEZAHL proves a work of art as distinguished as its creator, the venerable Joachim Witt.
