I discovered a lot of excellent German black metal in 2019 and one of the bands which I have to recommend insistently is WALLFAHRER. Their style is dynamic and powerful, but also melodic and enthralling. Dramatic, epic, atmospheric songs, a good portion of catchiness and a whiff of poetry in best German tradition are admirable features of this first class debut with just the right sound! H.L.
absolutely loving this new, more natural sound. their first albums always had an intentionally cold feel to them, which i enjoyed, but this new sunlight-filled album really comes into it's own.
they keep the mix tight and blurred but now the natural feel of a live drummer is more pronounced.
this is how the mighty EARTH AND PILLARS needed to sound.
crazy good album, and old fans will find this a refreshing new sound. Glitzy Límon
This band is incredibly refreshing, and innovative in a genre that has become rather stale. Grima transports you to the snow covered wilderness of Russia, and leaves you to fend for yourself. It's not your everyday, run-of-the-mill atmospheric black metal. It's truly something more. Their use of various instruments you seldom hear applied to black metal speaks to their level of creativity. 10/10 album! aliciakay47
