DRAUTRAN
DRAUTRAN
Throne Of The Depths
(Lupus Lounge)
50:59min

Eight years after their highly praised self-financed debut album (or call it demo, whatever...) "Unter dem Banner der Norwinde" DRAUTRAN from Germany are back with their next effort, finally signed with the Prophecy Productions sublabel Lupus Lounge. "Throne Of The Depths" is a 51 minutes long Pagan Metal monster which offers everything each fan of this type of music will adore: fast and furious blast beats, many atmospheric and acoustic parts, shredding guitars with great riffs in the Black Metal way, screaming and clean vocals (which are among the only thing which left some space for improvements, if you ask me). The 8 songs included on this CD offer a huge variety of Metal music for all heathens out there and those who love this type of music. Just check out the brilliant 'Gebaren des Sterbens in klanglosen Sphären' with its calm acoustic beginning and its violent continuation (what a great guitar riff). This song offers everything you need from this type of bands. Besides these fast blackened Pagan songs, songs like the acoustic 'Saevar Nidr' with its female chants mix the whole bunch of violence up very well and forces me to write that this piece of plastic is highly recommended to all fans of the above mentioned music style and for others who are open-minded enough to invest their money in some newcomers of the scene (though newcomer is probably not the right word anymore...). A very good release, still I feel that this band hasn't reached its peak! www.lupuslounge.com.
