the new album 2020

Available at:


... Get up, go to Ninive , the great city, and preach against it;
for her wickedness has risen before me.
                                                                                 Jonah 1,2


My music is about the story of the prophet Jonah.
It is one of the short stories in the Bible.
He resisted God's instruction.

This album is the first part of my project
and ends where Jonah came ashore.
The second part of the story follows,
and will appear under the title "NO TIME WAS LOST".

I experienced some parallels in my life.
So I was able to experience God's grace through Jesus Christ.

Many thanks to Marcus Hildebrandt for creating the cover images
and to Bernd Scholl for the artwork and audio mastering.


Rainer “Otarion” Klein

... It's never easy to explain Otarion's music.
Especially since the German musician undertook a surprising turn towards symphonic
and electronic hard rock with his album Decide in 2017.
His music remains dark and theatrical with a progression in each story
that brings us to a huge crescendo of emotions.
Following the eagerness of Extensive, PRAYER FROM THE DEEP tells the story
of the prophet Jonah who resisted to God's orders. ....

Sylvain Lupari (November 24th, 2020)  Synth&Sequences

... Rainer Klein, der als Otarion firmiert, entwickelt sich von Album zu Album kontinuierlich weiter.
Hat er als reiner Elektronikmusiker begonnen, so sind seine aktuellen Alben aus einer Mischung
von Elektronik- und Rockmusik aufgebaut.
Dabei haben auf dem aktuellen Album „Prayer From The Deep“
neben Progressive Rock auch Postrock-Elemente den Weg in seine Musik gefunden.
Eine sehr gelungene Mischung, die Rainer da zusammengebraut hat. Klasse Album.
