Frangar are a band from Italy that plays black'n'roll with elements of crust and this is a review of their 2016 album "Trincerocrazia" which was released by Ultima Madre.
Italian music samples start off the album before going into a heavier crust punk direction that also introduces grim yet high pitched black metal screams of the genre while the tremolo picking brings in the more raw side of the genre along with a great amount of 90's influences and spoken word parts can also be heard at times.
When the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard and the riffs also bring in a decent amount of melody while some songs also bring in punk style back up shouts and you can also hear the influence of black'n'roll in the guitar riffing and when solos and leads are utilized they are done in more of a melodic fashion and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length and as the album progresses samples of World War II Italian music also makes a return in certain sections of the recording.
Frangar plays a musical style that takes the raw style of black metal from the 90's and mixes it in with elements of black'n'roll and crust to create a sound of t heir own, the production sounds very dark, raw and old school while the lyrics are written in Italian and cover totalitarianism, war and Italian nationalism themes.
In my opinion Frangar are a very great sounding raw mixture of black'n'roll and crust and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Fare Quadrato (S.P.Q.R)" "Trucidata" "Bombe sopra a Gorla" and "Rivolta - Reveulta". 8 out of 10.
