The Unknown Spectre of Evil

Rated 3.5/5 (70%) (2 Votes)

This is my first encounter with German black metal terrible two-some Wolfsschrei, who now have two full-lengths and a copious amount of splits and EP's under their belts. From the get go you can tell how experienced Taaken and Naudhiz are at their game, and for this EP their line-up is rounded out by a session drummer Thon.

Wolfsschrei play fast, aggressive, hate-filled black metal. From the push of the play button the title track begins with an excellent riff, all the more potent thanks to a blood-curdling guitar tone. With no time to lose Thon lets rip on the drum-kit and sets up the pace for the rest of the EP. With excellent riffs, haunting single guitar melodies that sound genuinely inspired, Taaken's venomous, hateful, spite-ridden vocals and of course Thon's superb sticks work, The Unknown Spectre of Evil certainly has me impressed. The band blend a lot of melody into their sound, which I feel gives the EP more replay value and on each spin I've always found something I didn't quite register on the previous play through. Certainly one of the finest black metal EP's I've heard in quite some time, and one I'd recommend to fans of the German black metal scene, and of course black metal fans in general.
