Clemens “Ardek” Wijers delivers Orchestral Contribution to Lindemann!
“CARACH ANGREN are highly acclaimed for their mindblowing orchestrations, which accentuate and underline the epic and narrative aspects of their horror metal masterpieces. The extraordinary talent as a composer of keyboarder Clemens “Ardek” Wijers has not escaped the newly forged alliance between RAMMSTEIN frontman Till Lindemann and Peter Tägtgren of HYPOCRISY and PAIN, which operates under the moniker LINDEMANN.
The leading Dutch metal magazine AARDSCHOK has just revealed in its May issue that Ardek of CARACH ANGREN has contributed to this project.
The composer comments: “I’m very proud to announce that I have created orchestral arrangements for project LINDEMANN by Till Lindemann and Peter Tägtgren”, relates Ardek. “Their album called ‘Skills in Pills’ will be released in May and is going to be a killer! You can read more about this in the latest Dutch magazine ‘Aardschok’.”
Legendary Swedish producer and musical mastermind Peter Tägtgren compliments: “Clemens pimped up my orchestra parts like a god.”
