EASTERN FRONT
BLOOD ON SNOW
CANDLELIGHT

Corpsepainted UK quintet Eastern Front delivers malevolent black metal with a wartime theme on their debut endeavor BLOOD ON SNOW. This eight-track excursion examines the subject of warfare with both atmospheric embellishment (“Dvenadtzat Kilometrov Ot Moskvy”) and black metal belligerence (“Stalinorgel”) spearheading the assault, juxtaposing between harsh vocal (“Blood on Snow”) and tremolo picked savagery and somber doom-laden passages from track to track with relative ease (“Battle of Smolensk”). While Eastern Front offers little new to the genre, the way this unit connects their hodgepodge of styles together forms an impressive frontline account of the horrors of the battlefield.
