about

This album is a soundtrack written by We Stood Like Kings to Walter Ruttmann's 1927 silent city symphony "Berlin: Die Sinfonie der Großstadt".

“Those who doubt this score’s success should try playing a different sort of music over the images; few, if any, will work. One can’t imagine many bands, even post-rock bands, being able to pull this off, but We Stood Like Kings is up to the challenge. ”

“Den Belgiern gelingt es auf “Berlin 1927″ übrigens mit erstaunlicher Mühelosigkeit, zwischen den Stimmungen zu wechseln: verträumt, episch, nachdenklich, heftig, strahlend. ”

— Plan My Escape

“We Stood Like Kings’ Berlin 1927 has the ability to transport you back in time and breathe new life into a symphonic, silent film that was compiled from clips of a period where the individuals that were a part of it were all-together unable to escape their environment. Life was that very moment; without the internet or modern day luxuries to elude it. Paying an earnest homage, this album is something profound and resounding. We Stood Like Kings is an act that we must sit back in awe, appreciate, and applaud for the efforts they’ve pieced together with this work.”
