Erntegang are a solo project from the Germany that plays a mixture of industrial and folk music and this is a review of his self released 2014 album "The Meager Years".
Percussion's and acoustic guitars which also use both finger picking and full chords start off the album along with some clean singing vocals a few seconds later and the music goes for a neo folk style and whispers can be heard in some parts of the songs and after awhile the music gets more atmospheric.
Elements of industrial can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording and the songs also bring in a traditional folk music feeling at times which also gives the songs more of a medieval atmosphere while some of the whispers have a touch of black metal to them and some of the tracks also bring in a small amount of spoken word parts and the drum beats also add in elements of martial and also gives the songs a militant feeling.
Erntegang plays a style of neo folk that also mixes in elements of industrial and martial music to make the songs stand out a bit more, the production sounds very powerful for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark, misanthropic and Norse Paganism themes.
In my opinion Erntegang are a very great sounding mixture of industrial and folk and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Dance Of Death" "Misanthropia" "Algiz And Roses" and "Salvation". 8 out of 10.
