Der Blutharsch ("snow drenched in blood", "dried blood" or "scab" -- but really a reference to a Swiss mercenary company circa 1600 AD) is the primary musical project of Austrian musician Albin Julius. Der Blutharsch uses heavily layered and textured neoclassical and martial themes which usually unfold over the course of a whole album. Individual tracks are almost always untitled. Julius co-founded The Moon Lay Hidden Beneath a Cloud along with his then-partner Alzbeth. This project produced more neofolk-based music, based around themes drawn from European history and folklore.
