Urfeind - Wraiþaz (2020)


Delivering a firm blow of powerful Black Metal, today we have Germany’s Urfeind and their latest EP “Wraiþaz”. Mixing crafty melodies with intense riffing, this outfit unleashes nearly 21 minutes of engaging music that any fan of the genre will enjoy. Staying away from cliches, this band commands attention thanks to their firm and aggressive sound.

Opening with “Nine to Zero”, we get a mid-tempo wave of crafty riffs and a powerful snarl, expertly paired to inflict maximum damage. The band’s sound is straightforward, and yet all-consuming thanks to their solid instrumentation. The intensity increases with the blistering guitars of “Void” creating a very hypnotic and engaging atmosphere.

Just when you think things can’t get any more brutal, “Anthem of Decay” is unleashed upon the listener. Filled with hellish vocals, ravaging drumming, and incisive riffs, this track is by far the most complete and crushing in this release. One of the most underappreciated items in BM releases is a solid Bass guitar line and tracks like “Inner Rampage” showcase the band’s ability to also deliver in that regard with sheer intensity and perfect execution.

Overall, “Wraiþaz” is a very punishing and aggressive release that showcases one of the many hidden talents the German BM scene has to offer. If you like pummeling and high-octane music, look no further and get a copy of this release.
