Endstilles Reich

Rated 2.33/5 (46.67%) (6 Votes)

I had never heard of Endstille before this, and from this album I can't say I feel like I missed a whole lot. This is the band's fifth album, and a more relentlessly orthodox Black Metal album is difficult to imagine. Whatever you think this would sound like at the words "German Black Metal" this is pretty much it, only this is a bit more generic than what you are imagining. The guitar sound is pretty good, and the riffs aren't bad, but the songs just repeat and repeat, the vocals screech pointlessly, and never does anything stand out as different or original, or even good. This kind of Black Metal really saddens me, as it is like a bunch of good influences stuck in a blender and pureed to a fine gruel, with every interesting bit filed off or ground into paste. This isn't terrible, you won't turn it off in disgust, but there's nothing good about it either.
