Pestlegion are a band from Germany that plays an old school form of black metal and this is a review of their 2018 ep "Enstage Gott" which was released by Bleeding Heart Nihilist Productions.
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the ep before going into a very fast and raw musical direction which also uses a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats while the vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams along with a few growls and the music is very heavily rooted in the 90's.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the riffs also bring in a small amount of dark sounding melodies along with the solos and leads being done in a very melodic style and the music also mixes in influences from the Swedish, Norwegian and Finnish styles of the genre and the second track also adds in a small amount of synths in the background.
Pestlegion plays a style of black metal that is very raw and traditional in the Northern European tradition, the production sounds very dark, raw and old school while the lyrics cover Satanism and Occultism themes.
In my opinion Pestlegion are a very great sounding old school black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Final Sacrifice". 8 out of 10.
