Vera : With the albums ‘Von Worten Und Taten’ (2013) and ‘Berserker’ (2016), German band Asenblut achieved any fame and recognition in the international pagan metal scène. In brief their sound can be described as fetching melodic death metal with a pinch of black and thrash, plus some obvious reminiscence of Amon Amarth. On this MCD they dive into their own past. They present us four songs of the debut album ‘Aufbruch’ (2009), rerecorded with the current line-up with producer Sebastian ‘Seeb’ Levermann who also produced their recent works. Four inciting and catchy songs in a new outfit is what we get, plus a cover of ‘God Or Man’ from Manowar, but with Tetzel’s low-ranged growls that’s not an improvement.
