Nightmare Brewing Co Blood Eagle Fruited Sour x Rammstein - Feuer Freil!

 

Echoes of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, originally published with the subtitle ‘The Modern Prometheus’, referring to the original pyromaniac who, in Greek mythology, defied the gods by stealing fire.

Rammstein’s shows use grandiose fire effects and the word ‘fire’ is among the most used in their lyrics.
“Mutter (‘Mother’) takes us on a journey from cradle to grave, stopping off to take in love, sex and politics. There are references to German literature throughout Rammstein’s songs. It was also the heyday of Dark Romanticism and the Gothic, exploring the supernatural, evil and the grotesque. It is the stuff of childrens and adult nightmares.
Feuer Frei! (‘Fire At Will’) plays with different meanings of fire, including the proverb ‘gebranntes Kind scheut das Feuer’ or as our tamer English version has it, ‘once bitten, twice shy’

Mutter leaves you with the sense that, sometimes, the nightmares begin when you wake up.”

Something tasty to drink that's complex as well as has some gory graphics to compliment this record..
How about a beer from Nightmare Brewing Company called Blood Eagle, a Fruited Sour.
The Viking inspired brew translation from Swedish has beer notes that sound something like this; Poached pear, floral pear blossoms, pink peppercorns spice, candied plum skin and underlying port wine nose. Explosive natural fruit punch and fruit leather, Flavors of Berry medley, strawberry rhubarb, juicy plum and mascerated bing cherry. Cranberry bite in the finish with lingonberry and cloudberry dry tartness.” now THAT's something I can imagine Ragnar and Lagertha Lothbrok sitting down and drinking after a long week at battle. skål !
