Nordisches Blut/Our Banners Will Rise/Undercover Records/2003 CD Review

Nordisches Blut are a band from Germany that plays a very dark, raw and atmospheric form of pagan/ns/black metal and this is a review of their 2003 album "Our Banners Will Rise" which was released by Undercover Records.

Drums range from slow to mid paced drumming to fast playing with some occasional blast beats, while the synths bring a very dark, atmospheric medieval feel to the music, as for the bass playing it has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars.

Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast raw pagan black metal riffs and there are little to no guitar solos or leads present on this recording, as for the acoustic guitars which are only used briefly on one song and the outro they bring a very dark pagan medieval feel to the music with full chords and finger picking being used.

Vocals are all grim black metal screams, while the lyrics cover Asataru themes and ns occultism with the songs being written in both German and English, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive feel to it.

In my opinion Nordisches Blut are a very good raw atmospheric pagan/ns/black metal band and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "IN Pagan Fire" "Odins White Wolves" "Barbarians From The North" and "Blood And Pride". RECOMMENDED BUY.
