After a long-awaited coming, the third assault of IM EINSATZ (ex- DIE MACHT) saw the light. IM EINSATZ is probably the one and only dark ambient project from Switzerland offering creations in the same vein as LJDLP, Wappenbund or Toroidh. This masterpiece is now out on the french label SLAUGHTER IN ART.

« Alerte en Pays Neutre » is a concept album around the thema of « controversial » History of Switzerland during Worl War II and its armed neutrality.

As Germans say, a true « Gesamtkunstwerk» which supposed an important and long documenting work behind the musical side, through specific historic samples and beautiful lyrics included in the booklet. An authentic  and deeply moving « duty of memory », contrary to the contemporary ethno-masochism imposed to current Switzerland by unable, senseless and guilty authorities.

The most impressive side of the samples used in this album -on both french and german language- and taken from rare information radio programms, official meetings and sppeches, is their strong pridefull dimension of being a swiss man, belonging to this little alpine trilingual community, together with the intense conviction of defending this identity.

Which political man would be nowadays able to speak whith such an honesty, pride and transparency?

Of course Switzerland less suffered than the other european countries. But during 6 years of War, Switzerland faced isolation and fear of tomorrow, ready to fight a potential invasion…

Im Einsatz’s music was created as the sound of resistance: symphonic, grandiloquent, but also saturated and stifling, exactly as the oppressive ambience Switzerland knew at these troubled times.

Quotations in the inside-booklet place Switzerland in a true non revisionnistic historical point of view, such as this one, pronounced by Winston Churchil himself and now being so contradictory to the neo-historians who have it volountary forgotten: «Of all the neutrals, Switzerland has the greatest right distinction… she has been a Democratic State, standing for freedom and self-defense among her mountains, and in thought, in spite of race, largely on our side.»Lars Kophal SoleilNoir Div
