Valsblut/Warage/Vestiges d'une nouvelle ere/Taran Production/2004 CD Review

This is a review of a split album between 2 ns bands from France Valsblut and Warage and the album is called "Vestiges d'une nouvelle ere" and was released by Taran Productions we will start of the Review with Valsblut.

Valsblut plays a style that I would describe as being raw and primal fast sounding ns pagan/black metal.

Drums range from slow, midpaced to fast drumming with some blast beats being used at times, while the bass playing is mixed down low in the mix and seems to follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars.

Rhythm guitars range from slow, midpaced to fast raw black metal riffs and there are little to no guitar solos or leads present on their side of the split.

Vocals are a mixture of high pitched and grim black metal screams with a spoken word passage being used on one song , while the lyrics are written in French nd cover Paganism and National Socialism, as for the production it is very raw and primal sounding.

In my opinion Valsblut are a very good raw and primal sounding ns black metal band, and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECEMMONDED TRACKS "Guerrier du Soleil" and "Asservis dans la vallee des larmes".

Now we will review Warage's part of the split, Warage plays a very raw nd primal form of ns black metal that is also very brutal sounding.

Drums range from slow, midpaced to fast drumming with a good amount of last beats, while the bass playing sounds very strong with some primal sounding black metal riffing.

Rhythm guitars range from slow, midpaced to fast raw black metal riffing that has a war metal feel at times with somewhat of a thrash edge with some ocassional melodic riffs and there are little to no guitar solos or leads present on their side of the recording.

Vocals are all high pitched black metal screams, while the lyrics are written in a mixture of English and French with themes that cover Elitism, National Socialism and Paganism, as for the production it is very heavy, raw and primitive sounding.

In my opinion Warage are a very good raw and brutal ns black metal band, and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECEMMONDED TRACKS "Trapped In Eerie's World Of Blasphemy" and "Charnier Global".

In my opion this is a great split album with Warage having the best music, and if you are a fan of raw ns black metal, you should check out this album. RECEMMONDED BUY.
