Highly anticipated proper and deserved release of Heimdalls Wacht's latest and most important album. Authentic and nostalgic pagan black metal. Without a doubt one of the most respected black metal bands from Germany, always following their own old-school path and attitude, never wimping out or going for the stereotypes or for cheap political remarks. Expect epic yet melancholic guitar melodies and captivating, triumphant choirs carefully composed to mix with aggressive and fierce blasting parts, as well as sections that remind of traditional folk music. Enriched with conceptual lyrics, philosophical and traditional wonderings, deeply rooted in the history of their home-state Westphalia.

I discovered a lot of excellent German black metal in 2019 and one of the bands which I have to recommend insistently is WALLFAHRER. Their style is dynamic and powerful, but also melodic and enthralling. Dramatic, epic, atmospheric songs, a good portion of catchiness and a whiff of poetry in best German tradition are admirable features of this first class debut with just the right sound! H.L.
