Andeis are a band from an unknown area that plays a very timeless and primitive form of black metal and this is a review of their 2019 album "Servants Of The Cold Night" which will be released in March as a joint effort between Lunar Apparitiona and Esfinge de la Calavera.
A very dark, ritualistic and nature orientated intro starts off the album which also introduces keyboards onto the recording that also mix in with the heavier sections of the music at times. Vocals are mostly grim sounding black metal screams while the faster sections of the songs also utilize a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats which also gives the music more of a raw feeling.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them while the music also has a great amount of 90's influences but also sounding very modern at the same time. Some of the songs also capture a good amount of hallucinating passages which also gives the music a lot more originality.
All of the heavy riffs stick to a very fast direction while one track is also an ambient instrumental and they close the album with a track that is very long and epic in length. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics are written in German and cover death and sorcery themes.
In my opinion Andeis are a very great sounding timeless and primitive black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Hailag leik" and "The Black Oath". 8/5 out of 10.
