Pantheon/Pflichterfullung/Hakenkreuz Productions/2001 CD Review

  Pantheon are a band from Arizona that plays a very raw and primitive form of ns pagan/viking/black metal and this is a review of their 2001 album "Pflichterfulling" which was released by Hakenkreuz Productions.

Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a good amount of blast beats being thrown in, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful with some pagan black metal riffing that dominates throughout the recording, as for the keyboards when they are utilized they bring a very epic and atmospheric sound to the music.

Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast ns pagan/viking black metal riffs that are very raw and primitive sounding with some epic sounding melodies being used on occasion and there are little to no guitar solos or leads present on the recording.

Vocals are a mixture of grim sounding and high pitched black metal screams with a spoken word passage and sample being used on the least song, while the lyrics cover National Socialism and Norse Paganism, as for the production it has a very raw and primitive sound to it.

In my opinion Pantheon are a very good raw and primitive sounding ns pagan/viking/black metal band and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Wotanic Star" and "The Return To Our Pagan Past". RECOMMENDED BUY.
