Austria Black Metal ELLENDE will release their 4th full-length album Ellenbogengesellschaft this Friday, September 30th with AOP Records. If you have not heard of this band, I strongly encourage you to look into them because they are so sick!! Ellende was founded in 2011 by L.G. as a solo project and turned into a live band with session musicians in 2012.
The whole album definitely rules and reminds me of a lot of older black metal bands like Venom, Mayhem, Entombed but a more tame version of those bands. One of my favorite songs on the record is Ruhelos. It starts off as a tame song and then out of nowhere puts you in the driver’s seat of blast beats and fast guitar riffs. Then it will go back to a slower tempo, it is a rollercoaster of emotions in this one!
Don’t forget to check out Ellenbogengesellschaft September 30th! In the meantime you can check out the single Ruhelo below!
