"2CD 30 tracks, of which 22 ALL EXCLUSIVE! Comes with nice 16-pages booklet. This compilation is dedicated to the morbid erotic photo art of Helmut Wolech, one of the true Vienna underground icons. His work was extensively featured in the German magazine :Ikonen:, on artwork by Belphegor and Allerseelen. The bands selected for this project share either a strong connection with Helmut's artistic topics namely the mingling of Love & Death (thus 'Thanateros' thanatos meets eros) or are related to the artist or the magazine in a friendly manner. CD one (Love) features the melodic and folky songs, CD two (Death) focuses on the more nasty and bleak stuff. Both sides are present in Helmut's work, playful yet dark and haunting. The 16-pages-booklet features examples of Helmut Wolech's unique vision.
