Eastern Front/Blood On Snow/Candlelight Records 2010 CD Review

  Eastern Front are a band from Great Britain that plays a very brutal form of war/black metal that also has a death metal feel to it and this is a review of their 2010 album "Blood On Snow" which will be released by Candlelight Records.

Drums alternate between slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a lot of brutal blast beats that are very heavy and crushing, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound that dominates throughout the album, as for the keyboards when they are utilized which is rare they have a classical music feel that brings back memories of the war.

Rhythm guitars alternate between slow, mid paced to fast raw war/black metal riffs that also have some death metal influences with a small amount of melody being used at times, while the lead guitars when they are utilized they have a very melodic feel to them, as for the acoustic guitars when they are used to bring an ancient feel to the brutal music that is on this recording and on the last song there is a small amount of violin being utilized.

Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams with some deep death metal growls being thrown in at times mixed in with some occasional spoken word passages as well as some samples from the second world war, while the lyrics cover World War II, as for the production it has a very raw feel but you can still hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.

In my opinion Eastern Front are a very good war/black metal band and if you are a fan of this style you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Stalinorgel" "Blood On Snow" and "At The Gates Of Moscow". RECOMMENDED BUY.
