Frostland Tales - "Paths Of Life" (2014)


Year: 2014
Genre: DSBM, Death/Doom Metal
Country: Czech Republic 

Track List:
  1. Paths Of Life Pt.I
  2. Paths Of Life Pt.II
  3. Paths Of Life Pt.III
  4. (666.) Don't Want To Live Anymore

For those who became interested in Frostland Tales after I posted that split w/ Forgotten Dawn - here's the first demo EP of this project, recorded in 2013 and released in 2014. It consists of 3 untitled tracks, and a bonus one which originally was intended for a second EP (which was going to be named "Soul Cuts", but most of the material for it was lost due to a PC crash).

The author thinks it's rather DSBM than blackened doom or something like that, but for me it sounds a lot like 90's death/doom metal. The main sources of inspiration were the Czech band Trist (R.I.P.), and the  Swedish one Hypothermia. The low quality of recording and the absence of vocals were intended to make the release more atmospheric. The sole member of Frostland Tales is also active in several other bands, some of which may be more RABM-themed than this one (anarcho-grindcore, oldschool raw BM, etc.)
