Frostland Tales - "Konec" (2015)


Year: 2015
Genre: "Melancholic Monotonous Black Metal" (self-described)
Country: Czech Republic

Track List:
  1. Bezmocný, bezcenný, bez života (Hopeless, Priceless, Lifeless)
  2. Cesty života (Paths of Life)
  3. Sny o jiné existenci (Dreams of Another Existence)
  4. Snění (Dreaming - Trist cover)

Finally, a first full-length release from Frostland Tales, which title ironically means "The End". It features two re-recorded tracks from the first demo (the first, which is a new version of "Don't Want to Live Anymore", and the second), one new track, and a cover version of a song from the Trist/Korium split. Total playing time is 39:40 (394 is the serial number of a guitar used in recording this album).

There are some vocals, which were recorded in a forest, for a "natural reverb". To be honest, vocals are the least appealing part of this album for me, fortunately there's not much of them. The sound and musicianship in general remains quite raw, demo-quality, but for me it's the main part of this project's appeal. The CD will be available soon as well, with the release note promised to include a mention of my blog.
