Welltschmerz/Cry For War/2009

Weltschmerz are a band from the Netherlands that plays a raw form of war induced black metal and this is a review of their 2009 e.p "Cry For War".

Drums are very fast on this recording with alot of brutal blast beats that bring back memories of some of the heavier Swedish black metal bands of the 90's with some slow parts at times, while the bass playing is all fast and distorted.

Rythym guitars on this e.p are fast black metal riffs with some slower palm muted parts as well as some melodic tinges while the lead guitars have a perfect balance of speed and melody which makes the music stand out from other bands of this style.

Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams with some lower blackened death metal growls and at times the music has some amient noise style samples while the lyrics cover war topics. As for the procuction it sounds very raw which is perfect for this style of black metal.

In my personal opinion this is a really good band, it seems like the practiced really hard for only being around a year and with some more experience and music recorded, I can see this band go really far.

RECOMEMMENDED TRAKS are "Total War" and "Hunt For Souls" and I would advise everyone to go their MYSpace page or email them on purchasing this release.
