Tierkrieger are a band from Fort Collins, Colorado that plays a very dark form of black metal that is also heavily influenced by death metal and this is a review of their self released 2016 demo "Tribulation Requiem".
Ritualistic sounds and chants start off the demo along with the music also getting darker and melodic a few seconds later along with a very dark atmosphere and the solos and leads also bring in a decent amount of melody and after awhile deep vocals and black metal screams are added onto the recording.
When the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard and the music also brings in a decent amount of death metal influences and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording and some of the slower riffing brings in a touch of doom metal.
Tierkrieger plays a musical style that takes black metal and mixes it with a more dark form of death metal to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very dark while the lyrics covr blasphemous, darkness and occultism themes.
In my opinion Tierkrieger are a very great sounding mixture of black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Blasphemonger" and "The Ancient Kult Of Melek Taus". 8 out of 10.
