Wolves Den are a band from Germany that plays an aggressive, melodic and atmospheric mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their 2020 album "Miserere" which will be released in May by Trollzorn.
Drum beats and a powerful sounding bass guitar starts off the album before adding in some heavy riffing. Melodies can also be heard in some of the guitar riffing while the faster sections of the songs also add in a great amount of blast beats along with the vocals being mostly grim sounding black metal screams.
Atmospheric sounding synths can also be heard in some parts of the recording while the tremolo picking gives the songs more of a raw feeling. When guitar leads are utilized they are also done in a very melodic style along with one tracks also introducing clean playing onto the recording as well as some death metal growls also being utilized at times.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with one track also introducing acoustic guitars, rain and thunder sounds onto the recording. Spoken word parts can also be heard briefly on a couple of songs and as the album progresses a brief use of melodic chants and singing can also be heard, the closing track is also very long and epic in length. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in a mixture of German and English and cover darkness, hate and melancholy themes.
In my opinion Wolves Den are a very great sounding melodic and atmospheric mixture of black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Tides Of Hate" "Nachtmahr" and "Nameless Grave". 8 out of 10.
