Our Journey Through The Woods
After two demos KLABAUTAMANN from Bonn, Germany release their debut album entitled "Our Journey Through The Woods". The music of this duo can roughly be classified as melodic and moderate Black Metal with German and English lyrics but they manage to add a special element by the use of sophisticated acoustic guitar arrangements. In addition to the already excellent and complex guitar work, the songs are riddled with atmospheric and very melodic acoustic guitars, even in doublebass and blast-beat parts. This "trademark" gives a lot of depth to the songs and the huge amount of details might guarantee a long-lasting listening pleasure for people who like to explore the finesse of a profound album. The production succeeds in highlighting the different guitar aspects but as a small flaw the drum sound could be louder and more powerful, which otherwise would have added a bit more bite to the songs.
