War where a band from Sweden that was a side project of some well known musicians from the Swedish black metal scene that played a very heavy, brutal, raw and primitive from of war/black metal and this is a review of their 1999 album "We Are War" which was released by Necropolis Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a great album of brutal sounding blast beats being thrown into the music, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful tone with riffs that dominate throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast war/black metal riffs that are very heavy, brutal, raw and primitive sounding with some influences from early 80's black/thrash while the lead guitars are very chaotic sounding black/war metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are all grim sounding and high pitched black metal screams, while the lyrics cover Satanism, War and Anti Christian themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful and heavy sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion War where a very great sounding of black and war metal and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "We Are War" "Ave Satan" "666" and "Bomhenangel" which is a Sodom cover. RECOMMENDED BUY.
