Kriegszitten are a band from Germany that plays a mixture of crust and death metal and this is a review of their demo which was released on cassette by Caligari Records.
A very distorted reverb sound starts off the ep before getting more heavy and adding in melodies and high pitched screams which leads up to more of a death metal direction along with some growls and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats are utilized and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
Elements of crust and d beat can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording and the songs are very heavily rooted in the early 90's style of death metal but done in more of a raw fashion and as the ep progresses solos and leads are brought in briefly along with soem of the faster sections also bringing in elements of grind.
Kriegszitten plays a style of death metal that is very old school and mixes it in with the raw energy of crust punk to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very raw and old school while the lyrics cover war, death, loss and sacrifice themes.
In my opinion Kriegszitten are a very great sounding mixture of crust and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Terminal War" and "Empty Eyes". 8 out of 10.
