->''I'm addicted to your love\\
I'm addicted to this game\\
You give me pleasures give me pain\\
You're the only one I need\\
You're the master I'm your slave\\
We can reach eternity\\
Please don't ever let me go\\
You know I'm your property\\
And we're running through the night\\
You're the angel of my dreams\\
From the darkness into light\\
I'll follow you''.
->'''Blutengel''' ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MssC4E0EYR0 I Will Follow]]''

A [[UsefulNotes/{{Germany}} German]] ElectronicMusic band with lyrics revolving around vampires. "Blut" is German for blood, "engel" for angel. Several songs refers to vampires by euphemisms such as "Angel of the night."

Sadly, has very little to do with [[BloodAngels vampire space marines]].

!!Blutengel lyrics has examples of:

* AfterTheEnd: "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TJN73VJKBCc World of Ice]]."
* AmbiguousSituation: The song "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5mfZvpMPj2s The Solitary Angel]]" is about a saviour who is "not from heaven sent" -- which means it could be a secular force or a spiritual force other then the god of Christianity. This character could be a powerful human, since "angel" is a common metaphor for generic benevolence. The character could also be a powerful vampire, since most of the songs from the same band are about vampires and they routinely use "angel" as a euphemism for "vampire" or "lover." And of course, it could also be referring to an angel in the literal religious sense -- either one that simply works on its own accord, or a fallen one. So, what trope or tropes is this?
** If he's a human, then it's BigGood with a dash of ForHappiness and OutgrownSuchSillySuperstitions.
** If he's a vampire, then it's a DarkIsNotEvil kind of CrystalDragonJesus.
** If he's the devil or the AntiChrist, then it's plain and simply SatanIsGood.
*** Or possibly a case of AntiAntiChrist.
*** Or he's [[TabletopGame/Warhammer40000 The Emperor]].
* ArrangedMarriage: The most likely background of the scenes in the song "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j4WeCXl2Gnw Black Wedding]]."
* BrokenBird / TheWoobie: The subject of "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9RjNPJ0aYDM Broken Girl]]."
* CreatingLifeIsBad: The song "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=asfex0mTSwQ The Oxidising Angel]]" twists the Literature/{{Frankenstein}} myth a bit. The created woman is exquisitely beautiful, and unlike Frankenstein her creator doesn't abandon her. However, she has a mind without having a soul, and this is utterly traumatic for her for unknown reasons to the creator as he is selfishly in love with her, refuse her plea to kill her. And thus she ended up killing him instead. The dark irony... and if there were a video it would be much more dark.
* DestructiveRomance: Several songs is strong with this trope, including "The Oxidising Angel" and "Black Wedding."
* DownerBeginning: The song "Frozen Heart" starts out just as bleak as the name sounds like, but it turns out to be more about DefrostingIcequeen.
* DyingAlone: The theme of the song "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=saNoXJn_Jtc I'm Dying Alone]]."
* EgocentricallyReligious: Many of the lyrics present the vampires as abusive and murderous. In "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i0WwF_bVhZU Save Our Souls]]," they finally start worrying about how bad their behavior is... For themselves. They still care nothing for their victims, praying only for their own souls.
-->We fight against, everything and everyone\\
With every war, we try to make our kingdom come\\
Every day we lose ourselves, more and more\\
But still we pray, for someone to save our souls.
* EvilIsSexy: In-universe, as an underlying theme in most songs mentioned here.
* FanFlattering: The song "Angels of the Dark" has the following to say directly to the listener: ''You're so much better and you're so different / you don't believe in what they do / I know you are one of us.''
* FauxEmpoweringEntity: God, in the song "No God."
* ForHappiness: "The Solitary Angel" is this. Or maybe not. Who knows what the lyric ''really'' means.
* GodIsFlawed: In the song "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iUf0tiM9ThA No God]]," God's biggest flaw is that he doesn't exist: "''There's a god in your life, / But he is not what you need. / He can't hear you when you call. / He can't help you when you cry. / [...] / Wake up and face reality, realize there is no god. / Wake up open your eyes, / No paradise on the other side!''"
** One of the classic philosophical arguments for why God exists is that God is perfect. If God doesn't exist, then he wouldn't be perfect. Thus, God exists. This song turns this argument upside down.
* GriefSong: "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rmGZHA7MZTE No Eternity]]," among others.
* {{Immortality}}: Living forever is highlighted as one of the best things about being a vampire in songs such as "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E2hUiYejiiI Vampire Romance]]."
* ItWasADarkAndStormyNight: The song "The Oxidizing Angel" begins on this theme.
* KayfabeMusic: The singers are vampires.
* LoudnessWar: ''Seelenschmerz'' is thumbs down one of the worst offenders, [[http://dr.loudness-war.info/album/view/5240 as shown here]], averaging -4 dbfs, with some tracks going down to as little as -1 dbfs.
* LoveMakesYouEvil: Can be interpreted into many of their songs, for example "The Oxidising Angel."
* LyricalDissonance: "The Oxidizing Angel" is an up-tempo, utterly danceable song about a necromancer who resurrects his dead lover. The resurrected lover promptly kills him and dies again because she has no soul.
* MaritalRapeLicense: "Black Wedding" can be seen this way.
* TheMasquerade: Referred to in "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hLuurIxMCs0 Soul of Ice]]."
* {{Motif}}: Apart from vampire-related things like the night, ice and winter feature in many of their songs, such as "World of Ice," "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x5jNjUqYJX4 Winter of My Life,]]" and "Soul of Ice."
* NaughtyNuns: The ''Moments of Our Lives'' DVD has two dancers dressed as nuns during the performance of "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MlIuRhn0n80 Lucifer]]." They eventually strip down to rather sexually charged outfits.
* OfCorsetsSexy: Videos such as "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w1G-9WUgptY Reich mir die Hand]]."
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: With songs such as "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_G0iS_LVLQU Bloody Pleasures]]," "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OdK96KNYd68 Children of the Night]]," and "Vampire Romance."
* PoweredByAForsakenChild: The song "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=moCMUoqZ40k Resurrection]]."
* PropertyOfLove: A main theme in songs such as "I Will Follow." See page quote.
* ProtagonistCenteredMorality: A core feature of songs such as "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CHAVRAD_c-Y Lucifer]]."
* RomanticizedAbuse: Several of the songs go along these lines -- often on a gender-neutral and structural level, talking about the lifestyles of vampires in general rather then about the actions of individual vampires.
* SatanIsGood: In "Lucifer," this trope is invoked but subverted since Lucifer's "goodness" relies on the ProtagonistCenteredMorality of a WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds.
* SexIsEvilAndIAmHorny: Seen through the eyes of the victim, in the song "Black Wedding."
* WasActuallyFriendly: Several songs run on this theme, with the cool vampires inviting the humans to hang out with them and maybe becoming immortal themselves.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: The song "Lucifer" is about a young woman who has been harassed and pushed around and excluded and everything for years and now has found someone to help her to call down literal hellfire over mankind -- assuming one takes the lyric literally, of course.
