Krieg - Full Lengths

Monday, February 3, 2014

American black metal with a completely unsubtle approach.  Nobody in Krieg has more than a whiff of death metal on their resume but you wouldn't come to that conclusion from their records; front-loaded but extremely well balanced at the same time.  I wouldn't go so far as to call them "old school", but they certainly don't have that "new" black metal sound that everyone hates.  No bad albums in this bunch, but god damn the The Isolationist is a keeper.
The Black House has a bit of a story behind it: N. Imperial claims to have nightly visions (since he was a child) of himself and loved ones being brutalized in some horrible dream house.  The album is an attempt to get over his nightmares as both medicine and therapy have failed.  Pretty kvlt.
