Martin Küchen knows how to pick titles. It already starts with the title of the album; Lieber Heiland, laß uns sterben or in English: Dear Savior, let us die. Küchen has furthermore selected titles for the tracks on this album with great care for choice of words and with a seemingly poetic intention. The Cathedral in Lund (small city in the south of Sweden, 20km north-east of Malmö) was consecrated in 1145, however the crypt which is considered to be one of the ‘oldest rooms’ in Sweden and the recording place of this album, was actually in use already in 1123, and built in 1121
Lieber Heliand, laß uns sterben Martin Küchen; Martin Küchen. 2. Music to silence music Martin Küchen; Martin Küchen. 3. Purcell in the eternal Deir Yassin Martin Küchen; Martin Küchen.
On Leiber Heiland, Laß uns Sterben historical events intersect right into the contemporary sound making, slit through their titles sharp cuts in our listening present era and pry our eyes towards the seemingly inexplicable backyard of history; which nevertheless created the plateau of disintegration and opportunity that we now seem to live o. Lieber Heiland, laß uns sterben.
