Vlad Tepes where a band from France that played a very raw form of satanic black metal and this is a review of their classic 1994 e.p which was released by Embassy Productions.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a great amount of blast beats, while the bass playing sounds very strong with some primal black metal riffing.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast raw black metal riffs that also have a melodic edge to them at times, while the lead guitars are very primal sounding black metal guitar solos.
Vocals are all high pitched black metal screams with some occasional weird vocals being used on the last track, while the lyrics cover Satanism, Darkness, Celtic Paganism and Vlad Dracul, as for the production it has a very dark and raw sound to it.
In my opinion Vlad Tepes where a very good raw satanic black metal band and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "War Funeral March" and Walachian Tyrant". RECOMMENDED BUY.
