Album Notes
Kriegs marine consists of four members: Roger Schmidt on the saxophone, Paul Schmidt on the trumpet, Marshall Grant on the drums and Mark Schmidt on a 6 string bass. Kriegs marine is a hard hitting heavy bass CD which attributes it's distincitive European sound to the bands German roots.
The band has been blending and refining their heavy jazz sound since the early 90's. Not unlike Europe's other great master of music Bach, Strauss, Beethoven and Mozart. Kriegs marine also has a story to be told. Only buy fusing jazz with rock music backing and classic music structure can this unique sound be produced.
As the band's name implies, Kriegs marine is a tribute to the German navy of World War II. To all the U-boat skippers and surface fleet crews whose cunningness and nerves of steel defied all odds. The tragedy as long since past, the guns have been silenced for decades but their memory will never die.
The band has just added four new songs to this CD, each in tribute of the men and ships that endured the worst. 7. U-100. 8. Up from the Ashes. 9. The Age of Rage. 10. Prinz Eugen. Each telling it's own version of strength and endurance in times of peril. It's this spirit where Kriegs marine inherits its inspiration, and if you listen with your heart you to will feel the moral courage that is still alive today. This makes for nearly forty minutes of intense listening adventure. So for music with an adventurous high seas experience, enlist now.

kriegsmarine is a very unique type of music kriegsmarine is a feast for the ears strong and powerfull music tunes like prinz eugen / u-100 / the age of rage / make me feel like Im on an intense adventure myself this is really great stuff something new something diffrent that portrays strength and endurance in times of peril.

Jim Osmer

Awesome bass lead compositions need to be heard
These are real songs with lead bass not jazzy improvisations. Has more in common with Nomeansno or John Paul Jones "Zooma" album than jazz. The horns are mostly for texture and emphasis so the bass can sound beautiful. Buy two because you will wear the first one out.
