Excerpt: “on “Wunden…” we find Sankt Otten are in an uplifting mood. It gets straight to the point and is introduced by flourishing waves of cinematic strings and robust, mechanical percussion. But, just like their peers, Sankt Otten are dab hands at this sort of business and know exactly when to pile on the drama. As the synth backdrop intensifies, it is vaguely reminiscent of a titanic foghorn, while guitarist Oliver Klemm ensures his precise playing is never dominated by the luxuriant strings. It all ends on a gorgeous note as the band layer Disney-esque harpsichord ripples across the mix.”
