"Die Welt der dunklen Gärten" now available | press feedback

Seven long years have passed since the release of Hekate's last album "Goddess." Today not only sees the release of "Die Welt der dunklen Gärten," the new work by the Koblenz group, but also of the "Gesammelte Werke" slipcase box-set containing all of Hekate's albums and EPs as well as the exclusive CD "Erinnerungen" featuring many rare and unreleased tracks. The press are in agreement that Hekate's fifth studio album was worth the wait, and they lavish "Die Welt der dunklen Gärten" with praise:
