Degotten – Black Wolf Pride (2016)

Release Date:January 4, 2016
Label:Evil Steel Records

Some Black/Thrash we got here,this band put out an EP Finsterkult back in 2014 that caught my ear and was wondering what happened to them,so I find this demo and it’s a four track one with two covers on it,makes me wonder why they only did two originals.

But this starts out with the title track Black Wolf Pride,this grabbed me from the start,I must say this isn’t your typical straight in your face black/thrash as a lot of others are doing, this has a lot of hooks in it that I find fit in really well.Brvce Amok (Vocals + backing,Guitars) has a great voice as well and he does the high’s as well, Sonnenmensch (Guitars,) does the high’s sometimes as well,very interesting stuff and the chorus rules!

Hail to the sword
Fuck the whore
Black Wolf Pride

All Legions Shall Fall
is totally different than the first track as this starts out with a black metal blast but then slows down as a spoken part comes in then the guitar comes in with this riff that rides this for a while then it gets fast again but slows down again and a guitar riff fades this away,this was written around a tale so it’s something you have to hear to really understand the concept,I quite enjoyed it because of the feeling it left me with.

We get two covers first In a Winter Battle (Desaster),I been a Desaster fan for a long time and this is a good cover,I liked the mix of the vocals on here which brought a new light to the track and then we have Over the Wall (Testament) I must say I was never a big fan of this band so I listened to the original and I personally think this cover is better than the original, just has a better feeling to me that made it more listenable.

This left me wondering where the band is headed because we have two different sounds on the originals and they should stick with there guns like they did on that first EP.
