Blackdeath – Totentanz (digipack CD)
Digipack CD. Compilation of the two Totentanz splits with Leviathan and Mortifera. The material here has the primitive aggression like Bottomless armageddon and previous albums, but upon closer listening you’ll find the riffs and song writing are slowly morphing into their later sound as heard on Vortex and Katharsis albums. Sounding strangely removed from a natural, organic sound, these songs are the last Blackdeath songs to feature drum computer and combined with the atypical melodies and sounds with hysterical and possessed vocals give the whole an unhuman aura that is uncanny. Comes as six-panel digipack with a booklet. Lyrics and the history behind the release are included in the booklet.
