Tsar Bomb - Neowarfare

So ask yourself this, how many decent Spanish Black Metal bands can you think of? probably not too many right? Beltane? Early period Dantalion? For me I had a love/hate relationship with Cryfemal and their weird/noisy brand of Black Metal with an over the top drum machine and oddly placed effects but I digress and onward with the review….

 

Tsar Bomb are the exception to that rule and have actually produced a quite Kvlt worthy slab of nihilistic, blast beat laden Black Metal.

 

There are meaty riffs to be had, scornful raspy vocals and an actual audible bass guitar for once.

 

Now I will say these are programmed drums and i will say its done quite well, sometimes the fills are a little over the top but the blasts and kicks sound decent and quite organic, which is a bonus as most people do not know how to use drum machines/programs to their full effect.

 

There are some Marduk-isms on here as far as the speed factor go but they also know when to slow it down and let the riffs do the talking.

 

This was a pleasure to come across and restored my blackened faith in Spanish Black Metal.

 

Recommended for fans of Marduk, Nokturne, Zyklon.
