SOLANG DAS HERZ SCHLAGT
Narziss is a German metalcore quintet that sings in their native tongue throughout the course of the group's 11-track endeavor. Not that you're able to tell though, as this As I Lay Dying meets Heaven Shall Burn influenced outfit are bludgeoning, brutal, and guttural when need be on tracks like "Das Tier", almost making the lyrics a bit of an afterthought. Emblazoned with a nice array of tempo changes and metallic gallops nestled in songs like "Veloren", Narziss is just another example of why German metal is so revered for its perfunctory precision and outright heaviness. Anyone down to learn another language and bang your head?
