Ateiggär - Us d’r Höll chunnt nume Zyt (2019)


Unleashing a very retro sounding Black Metal EP, today we have Switzerland’s Ateiggär and their debut EP “Us d’r Höll chunnt nume Zyt”. Affiliated with the Helvetic Underground Committee from Switzerland, this two man entity brings back the mood and sounds of the 90’s from bands like Limbonic Art and Tartaros. For nearly 30 minutes, this release transports us to the early days of the second wave of Black Metal thanks to its ingenious soundscapes and upbeat compositions.

After the traditional mood setting intro, “Und d Korybante tanzed in Sturm” leads the way with dramatic atmospheric arrangements and punishing distorted guitars. The track sounds and feels retro, but well produced, perfectly balancing the rawness of the vocals and the craftiness of the music, particularly the piercing bass guitar line. As the album title track rolls by, we are instantly hooked on the epic vibe produced by the Immortal-esque melodic guitars and lush atmospherics. The track’s crafty tempo changes create a very catchy and enjoyable track that is perfect for headbanging.

Those looking for heavier and faster music, “En Blinde namens Duracotus” is the perfect track for this , thanks to its intense drumming. The two members behind this release are experts in creating unique melodies that intertwine with each other as the track progresses, making each song quite diverse and enjoyable. Closing with the fury of “De Dämon us Levania”, the band ends the EP on a high note thanks to the intricate guitar work and funky vocal arrangements of the later stages of this song.

As a whole, “Us d’r Höll chunnt nume Zyt” is one hell of a lively EP filled with great ideas and excellent musicianship. If you are a fan of old-school Black Metal and are looking for something that is timeless and also has a modern kick to it, look no further: Ateiggär is the band for you. Formed in 2019, it is quite impressive that a band has a first release of this high quality.
