Heavy Metal Month II, Day 24) Digging in the crates: an underrated gem
I don’t know if this is so much an “underrated” song so much as I never hear anyone talking about Finsterforst’s 2015 album, Mach Dich Frei. Yes, the album is a bit of a challenge to get through with its extended track lengths and complicated arrangements. As you can hear above, however, the title track has one of the heaviest opening riffs in recent memory. Additionally, Finsterforst are good enough song writers they can add significant variance to a song to hold your interest but not allow it to sound disjointed.
If you’re a fan of bands like Primordial, Finsterforst is going to check off a lot of boxes for you, just with a Scando-Germanic flavor.
