Urfeind are a band from Germany that has had music reviewed before in this zine and plays an anti cosmic form of heathen black metal and this is a review of their self released ep "Wraiþaz" which will be released in 2021.
Melodic guitar solos and leads start off the ep while the vocals are done in mostly a deep yet grim black metal style. the riffs also add in a great amount of melody along with the faster sections of the songs also adding in some blast beats and all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them.
High pitched screams can also be heard in some parts of the recording while the tremolo picking also gives the songs more of a raw feeling. Throughout the ep you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with all of the music sticking to a heavier direction.
On this recording Urfeind goes into more of a melodic black metal direction. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover Anti Cosmic< Left Hand Path and Dark Germanic Heathenism themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Urfeind and if you are a fan of melodic, anti cosmic and heathen black metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Nine To Zero" and "inner Rampage". 8 out of 10.
