Germany's Eisregen have return with a new recording which shows the band continuing their original sounding mixture of dark and black metal and this is a review of their 2014 ep "Fletenfre" which was released by Massacre Records.
Drums beats start off the ep being adding in synths, heavy guitars and bass and grim black metal vocals/screams and the music also has elements of symphonic, synth pop and electronic music and the music sticks to mostly a mid paced black'n'roll direction.
On the later tracks guitar leads and spoken word parts become a part of the music along with a small amount of clean singing and the band also adds folk instruments into certain sections of the recording and all 5 of the songs have a very different sound to them while you can still tell it is the same band on all of them and on the last song the band speeds up a bit and adds in a small amount of blast beats.
Eisregen remain true to t heir sound and this recording only came out months after the full length which must of meant they had plenty of material written during the time, the production sounds very professional and the lyrics are written in German and cover death, gore, cannibalism, necrophilia and murder themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Eisregen and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Tausendschweiner' and "Mordlust". 8 out of 10.
