This is a review of another album from Eisregen which continues their original dark/black metal sound of previous recordings with the album being called "Todesttage" and released by Massacre Records.
"Waldgott" which is the first song on the album opens up with dark sounding violins along with some black metal vocals and drums a few seconds later and then keyboards and deeper vocals are added in along with heavy guitar riffs as w ell as some guitar solos and leads and then going into a faster direction with a brief use of blast beats and the song closes with arm pit noises.
"Todestag" starts up with heavy, mid paced guitar riffs and drums before adding in bass guitars, violins and black metal vocals and after a minute the music speeds up along with a small amount of blast beats and then slowing down with a brief guitar lead.
"DSDSL" begins with spoken word parts before adding in high pitched screams, drums and guitar leads which also lead to bass guitars and deeper vocals and a minute later the music speeds up a bit along with a brief use of blast beats and then slowing down again and getting more melodic which also leads to the song alternating between fast and slow parts.
"Hoellenfahrt" opens up with fast black metal guitar riffs and blast beats from the drums along with some melodic guitar riffing before adding in grim sounding high pitched screams and after a couple of minutes the music goes into a slower direction along with a small amount of melodic guitar leads before returning to a faster direction.

"Seele Mein" has its start with keyboards, drums and black metal vocals which also leads to heavy guitar riffs and melodic leads and towards the end elements of classical music are added in along with spoken word parts.
"Eisenherz" which is also the last song on the album opens up with keyboards before adding in industrial style drums and heavy guitars as well as spoken word parts as well as some melodic and symphonic elements which also lead to a brief guitar solo.
Song lyrics are written in German and cover cannibalism and necrophillia, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Eisregen and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Waldgott" "Hoellenfahrt" "Familienbande" and "Tod Untot". RECOMMENDED BUY.
