Emmanouel covers “Sadness Makes Me Vulnerable ” by Pelikaaner
With "Sadness Makes Me Vulnerable", the Lodz metal heads crack open their armour. Melancholic trombones whisper through the military precision playing of their guitars. Like an alchemist, Emmanouel transforms the brass instruments into a rising chant, both synthetic and moving, rendering our feelings of deep distress ever more real. Through a plea that seems to come from ones most inner depths, the listener is guided through the dispassionate and recurring labyrinth of despair. Faithful to the conversion of the sensation of anguish into sound, Emmanouel’s cover of "Sadness Makes Me Vulnerable" is as one with the original crescendo, yet he chooses rhythmical beats over an electronica overload.
Emmanouel (Berlin, Germany)

Today, living and working in Berlin, Germany, he is a regular animator at record label Raoul’s parties. Amongst his influences: Zu, Mile Patton, Miles Davies, Burzum, Ruins and The Beastie Boys.
