Todeskrieger are a solo project from Dallas, Texas that plays a melodic form of black metal and this is a review of his self released 2020 ep "Beyond The Realm Of Frost".
Classical guitars start off the ep along with some synths before going into a very fast and r aw musical direction which also uses a great amount of blast beats and tremolo picking. Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams along with the riffs also adding in a great amount of melody.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the solos and leads are also done in a very melodic style. Whispered vocals can also be heard briefly as well as one track also introducing clean playing onto the recording and the music also also very heavily rooted in the 90's Swedish style, all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them and spoken word parts can also be heard on the closing song.
Todeskrieger plays a style of melodic black metal that is very heavily rooted in the 90's Swedish tradition but with a sound that is also different from that era. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover darkness, death and occultism themes.
In my opinion Todeskrieger are a very great sounding melodic black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Enter the Nocturnal Mist" and "Transylvanian Solitude". 8 out fo 10.
