Bitterfeldt are a band from Germany that plays a dark mixture of doom and goth metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Gotzen.Dammerung" which will be released in March by Massacre Records.
Tragic sounding keyboards and atmospheric soundscapes start off the album along with some spoken word parts a few seconds later before adding in heavy riffs and melodic guitar leads and the vocals are mostly angry growls that are in between death and black metal and when clean singing is utilized it adds in a touch of goth.
Acoustic guitars can be heard in the music at times along with a small amount of spoken word parts and after awhile grim screams are added onto the recording and a great portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length and all of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and the songs also mix both the keyboards and heavy parts together and the riffs also use a great amount of melody and every other song is an intro and all of t he songs stick to a slow musical direction.
Bitterfeldt plays a musical style that mixes goth and doom metal with the heaviness of black and death metal to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in German and cover dark and apocalyptic themes.
In my opinion Bitterfeldt are a very great sounding dark mixture of goth and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Nordlicht" "Zauberland" and "Unendlich". 8 out of 10.
