Totengefluster are a band from Germany that plays a very symphonic form of black metal and this is a review of their self released 2013 album "Vom Seelensterben".
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with a great amount of blast beats being thrown into the music, while the synths bring a very dark, atmospheric and symphonic sound to t he music, as for the bass playing it has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast symphonic metal riffs that utilize a great amount of dark sounding melodies and there are little to no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.
Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams with some deep growls being utilized at times as well as some clean singing female vocals, while the lyrics are written in German and cover dark themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound for being a self released recording with some of the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion Totengefluster are a very great sounding symphonic black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Ein Tramgespinst" "Vom Seelensterben" and "Ein neuer Pfad". RECOMMENDED BUY.
