(review) Aussicthslos – Vollig Aussichtslos

folder

Austria has such great many names in extreme/black metal scene with Summoning, Abigor, Belphegor, Dornenreich coming to mind immediately. Aussichtslos has been in the scene since 2014 and this is their new record. The band name means futile or hopeless in German. There are six songs on this opus. Music of Aussichtslos is melodic epic black metal with lots of aggression, yet also many great guitar hooks and melodies bringing out all the anguish, darkness and grandeur of black metal. There are some blast beats and hyperspeed on this one, but main strenght of this entity lies in creating mid tempo and rich tempo changing atmosphere of hopelessness, apocalypse, yet aural pleasure for us blackened hearts and creatures that dwell in black metal emotions. For me, personal highlights on this record are Des Sommers Tod being true anthem and also Gefallen. Great album!

8,5/10
