Eisregen are a band that has been around since the 90's that plays an original style of atmospheric black metal and this is a review of their 2010 album "Schlangson" which was released by Massacre Records.
Drums are a mixture between slow to mid paced beats with some fast playing and the occasional blast beats while the keyboards have a tragic and atmospheric sound that have some progressive music influences with some piano being utilized at times as for the bass playing it follows the riffs coming out of the guitars.
Rhythm guitars are mostly black metal riffs that range from slow to fast with a lot of melody and some parts have a black'n'roll as well as doom metal feel to them, while the lead guitars have a lot of 70's influences in the solos.
Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams as well as the occasional death metal sounding grow with some clean singing while the lyrics are all written in German, as for the production on this album it sounds very professional and you can hear all of the instruments that are on the album.
In my opinion this is another good album from Eisregen and it sounds a lot different than their older material, if you are a fan of Atmospheric black metal with a rock edge you should check this album out. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Blut Aus " "Kai Aus Der Kiste" and "Das Allerschlimmste". RECOMMENDED BUY.
