Der Rote Milan are a band from Germany that has had music reviewed before in this zine and on this recording plays a very raw and melodic form of black metal and this is a review of his album "Moritat" which will be released in 2019 by Unholy Conspiracy Deathwork.
Acoustic guitar playing and atmospheric sounding synths start off the album before going into a very fast and raw musical direction which also uses a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats while the vocals are mostly grim yet high pitched black metal screams along with a few growls.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the solos and leads are done in a very melodic style along with some whispered vocals also being used briefly as well as a great portion of the tracks being very long and epic in length, a great amount of melody can also be heard in the guitar riffing and acoustic guitars also make a return in certain sections of the recording and as the album progresses a brief use of chanting can also be heard.
On this recording Der Rote Milan goes into more of a raw and melodic black metal direction, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in German and cover real life stories that took place back in the 30 year war of the 17th century.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Der Rote Milan and if you are a fan of r aw and melodic black metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Die Habsucht" and "Moritat". 8 out of 10.
