Evil Warriors are a band from Germany that plays a very aggressive and dissonant form of black metal and this is a review of their 2020 ep "Schattenbringer" which will be released in July by Endless Chaos Records.
A very fast and raw sound starts off the ep along with a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats. Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the vocals being mostly grim yet high pitched black metal screams and all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them.
A lot of the music is also very heavily rooted in the 90's era while still capturing a very modern day brutality. Dark sounding melodies can also be heard in some of the guitar riffing along with the guitar solos and leads being done in a very melodic style when they are utilized as well as most of the tracks also being very long and epic in length,.
At times the riffs get very repetitive which also captures a very dark atmosphere along with some semi clean vocals also being utilized briefly as well as the music also adding in some dissonant structures at times, clean playing is also added on the closing track which also shows the music also going into more of an experimental and avant garde direction as well as being an instrumental. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics are written in German and cover dark themes.
In my opinion Evil Warriors are a very great sounding aggressive and dissonant black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Fliege"and "Schattenbringer". 8 out of 10.
