Der Arbeiter is born in 2001. This project can be roughly described
as "military pop", with minimal electronics and acoustic elements.
Although it incorporates epic martial tones, it is a bit far from the
bombastic-wagnerian mainstream associated to the military scene. This
"fin de siecle" BPM style was chosen to incarnate underlying
forces (ancient, deep and archetypical energies) with influences from
well known acts like Death in June ("Nada!" period),
Allerseelen, 300.000 VK and others, including 80's synthy-wave.
The image of the Worker expresses his will with sharpness, precision,
and strength : an alchemical transformation of nature. All these concepts
converge in the music, which vary from industrial harshness to warmer
and softer moods. Lyrics are based on the words of poets like Hölderlin,
Rilke, Meister Eckhart, Miguel Serrano and others.
