Author Benedetta Baldin - 5.10.2023

Linus Klausenitzer is a German metal bassist who is about to release his debut album “Tulpa”. I have been so fascinated with his career as a musician and artist that I could not pass the opportunity to review this record.

The production of “Tulpa” is truly extraordinary, showcasing an incredible attention to detail that creates a captivating listening experience. It seems so vivid, just like you are taken on a remarkable journey that is both technically impressive and emotionally resonant.

But the most remarkable aspects of “Tulpa” are the thought-provoking and intense instrumental parts. Klausenitzer‘s mastery of his bass shines through as he skillfully weaves complex and emotive melodies that draw listeners in. The music is not only intellectually stimulating but also deeply moving, offering a rich tapestry of sounds and textures that leave a lasting impact (“Sister in Black“, “Lunar Assailant“).

The composition of this album is refined and intriguing, showcasing Klausenitzer‘s exceptional talent for seamlessly blending all the musical elements. The tracks on “Tulpa” are filled with unexpected twists and turns; we could argue that with so many guests (like Roland Grapow, Javi Perera and Chris Hermsdörfer), it would be impossible to have a bad album, but you can’t be too careful. “Tulpa” reveals new layers and nuances with each listen, rewarding repeated exploration.

Furthermore, the mixing of “Tulpa” is simply outstanding. Every instrument and element in the music finds its rightful place, resulting balanced and yet immersive. The clarity and precision in the mix allow each instrument to shine while maintaining a cohesive and harmonious overall sound.

In conclusion, “Tulpa” is an exceptional album that deserves wide recognition. Linus Klausenitzer has taken a step forward, innovating and merging so many different metal subgenres, it’s an adventure from the first moment you press play. I’m quite confident that it will not go unnoticed.
