This is actually the fourth album by the German band formerly known as Geist, who were forced to change their name to Eis when threatened with a lawsuit by some pussy, shit-eating alterna-rock band also called Geist who decided to be dicks about it. Probably because this band is about a thousand times more awesome than any other band with that name could ever hope to be. So now Geist, who are a great band that makes atmospheric Black Metal, has to re-debut as Eis with a whole new album. Fortunately Wetterkreuz ("Weathercross") is fantastic.

This band always had a sound with a lot of depth and shade to it, far beyond simple blast n' screech Black Metal and more in line with bands like Lunar Aurora or Mortuus Infradaemoni. This album is five long tracks of brooding, epic Black Metal with multilayered tremolo riffs and a shit-ton of atmosphere. Aggressive, adventurous, and deeply enjoyable, Wetterkruez is this band's best work and a powerful new beginning for their career.
