And finally, some more radical stuff I've kept for you. Tresckow is a solo "back valley black metal" project with anarchist/nihilist roots, emerged from German radical leftist underground in 2007 as a reaction to obvious nationalist currents in the BM scene. This is the first German anarchist black metal (not blackened crust or hardcore) band I've came across for so long. Musically it's atmospheric, mostly instrumental black metal with some prog elements. There never were any proper releases by Tresckow, but there are some demo recordings which I present to you. For me, it's good depressive BM, but a little monotonous and "wall of sound"-like. The project is named after Henning von Tresckow, who was a general in the German Wehrmacht who organized the resistance against Adolf Hitler. Now he's regarded an anti-nazi hero in Germany.

If you're interested in the current state of the project: "realising there's enough ideas and motivation to form a band, i teamed up with some friends from other crustcore/powerviolence bands (namely gunmob, slump, post war depression and hellborn messiah), picking up where i left tresckow. there's no proper recordings as of yet, imagine the older tresckow stuff minus the prog cheesiness, improved riffing, harsh female vocals added and way more aggressive". Well, let's hope for more good releases from them in the future.


P.S. According to some info I've got, some more German BM bands are left wing: namely Nocte Obducta, Der Weg Einer Freiheit, Samsas Traum, Coldworld and Eisregen. I've no idea if it's really so, but at least Der Weg Einer Freiheit sounds really good, and definitely simular to some Cascadian BM bands.
