FRENTRUM
FRENTRUM
Demo 2014
(self-financed)
19:10min

I guess some of you know the words from “The Warrior's Prayer / Blood Of The Kings” by MANOWAR: “Well, then I shall have to take you back with me, a long way in time...”. In this particular case it is Norway, early 1990s, arson, murder, suicide. Despite those incidents (or maybe because of them?) some great music was recorded, defining Black Metal in a way that is still emblematic more than 20 years years later. Raw, primitive (lo-fi Metal), yelling and shrieking combined with some special kind of echoing guitar sound. "No Fun – No Core – No Mosh – No Trends” was the name of the game. IMMORTAL and BURZUM released their self-titled EP respectively album, EMPEROR (former THOU SHALT SUFFER) and DARKTHRONE left their Death Metal roots behind and turned black. And, not to forget, in Switzerland SAMAEL opened the gates of hell with their debut “Worship Him”. Enough said, if you do not know what kind of music is played by FRENTRUM from Italy you better stop reading. A kind of strange fact that this band is active since 1996 (!) and it took them eighteen years to record and release a demo tape. For whatever reason, the added biography is written in the band's native tongue which I do not understand. Two songs in the Italian language in the vein of the above mentioned Norwegian Black Metal, more slow than fast. And the third song is a cover version of 'Transilvanian Hunger' by DARKTHRONE and this is really a great one. Because it is played in slow-motion version. Really a great effort, to play a different version without losing the original idea of the song. I do not know if this tape is limited, but I think so. For more info about price etc. contact the band directly: deathbreath@hotmail.it or www.facebook.com/frentrum
