With a gloriously sonorous texture that concedes to its harmonious alignment a formidable level of rebellious artistry, Mythen, Mären, Pestilenz can be qualified as a very authentic work, with a degree of creativity that certainly surpasses ordinary black metal.
With poetic and frozen passages, that aggregates an inextricable level of sensibility into their music, Ungfell offers to its audience way more than aggressive guitar lines and afflictively acute razor blade vocals, adding a consistent and sensitive cosmogony into its music, that has soul, reliance and consistence in the anatomy of its flexible conjuncture. With a more complex style that wonderfully amalgamates raw black metal with avant-garde and folk elements, melodic intonations and philosophical intuitions, the Swiss duo really proves the singularity of their melancholic and somber art with this groundbreaking work of abrasive, sincere and striking originality.
A work that evidently cannot be neglected by the underground community, Mythen, Mären, Pestilenz will easily find its way to a very passionate and dedicated audience. With the shadows of time falling from a universe that is being gradually reduced to ashes, Ungfell revives the true aspirations of black metal, with this undertaking and masterful record of delightful and genuine sagacity.
