1 Review for '1914 - The Blind Leading the Blind''The Blind Leading the Blind'
I first came across this band on a split album with Minenwerfer, and I fell in love with them immediately. The overall style of the band is very much similar to Minenwerfer, or even old school Marduk, but as with most Ukrainian bands, this band is much more sorrowful and melancholic than similar bands from other countries.
The latest release from them is a more mature version of the first album, in most parts. The overall sound and atmosphere is very much old school Marduk, and the vocals are very much inspired by old school Death/Doom bands. The production is very much crisp and well thought out, the leads and riffs are mostly doomy and mid-pace, but there are also some faster songs.
The drumming on this album is very much 90s Marduk worship. The blastbeats and repetitive drumming are almost perfect for the sound that they were going for with this release.
The guitar tone is almost perfect. Even though the riffs are not that catchy or original, the overall sound of the guitars is satisfying on its own!
The folk / old school jazz and radio announcements and interludes are very well placed, and makes the visual imagination of the scenes depicted very easy and authentic. My highlight of the album is "Stoßtrupp".
Generally, this is a great album, but my biggest complaint about it is the fact that there are too many songs with similar riffs. It would have been better if they would have excluded some repetitive parts.
