Rated 3.38/5 (67.5%) (8 Votes)

This is the debut album for Sturmtiger, originally a Danish band who have relocated to the UK. I was kind of expecting this to be something more like God Dethroned, what with the similar focus on WWI in the lyrical imagery, but this is much more protean and subterranean than that. Sturmtiger play a very deep-voiced and violent brand of war metal, with a hefty bottom end, flailing riffs, and vocals that sound like they are echoing up from inside a tank. The whole sound is mixed into a unified sound that hits like a spiked fist. This is much more like Bestial Warlust than anything more cleaned-up and accessible. I think it fucking kills.
