Allerseelen/Rauche Schale/Ahnstern/2010 CD Review

Allerseelen are a band from Austria that is a supergroup of some sorts with members from Svarrog, Eluviette, and Blood Axis that plays a musical style that combinesindustrial, metal, folklore, and pop and this is a review of their 2010 album "Rauche Schale" which was released by Ahnstern.

Drums are mostly slow beats with no fast playing with some industrial drum programming being used at times, while the violins have an European folk music feel to them, as for the bass playing it is mixed down low in the mix with slow riffs and has a powerful sound at times.

Rhythm guitars are mostly industrial style riffs that are very simplistic and have some metal influences, while the accoustic guitars bring an apocalyptic folk music feel to the music, as for the noise effects they have an avant garde feel to them mixed in with pianos that have a classical music edge.

Vocals are all clean singing vocals with some female singing being used at times, while the lyrics are written in German and cover nature and the philosophical/alchemical writings of Friedrich Nietzsche, Ernst J√ľnger, Carl Jung, Julius Evola with the lyrics being mostly influenced by Gerhard Hallstatt, as for the production it still sounds very dark while retaining a professional feel and you can hear all of the instruments that are on the album.

In my opiniion Allerseelen are a very good band that should appeal too anybody that likes a combination of industrial, folk, and metal. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Die Klange" Herbsttlied" "Rauchnachtsalz" and "Niemandsland". RECEMMONDED BUY.
