For a band that is lyrically preoccupied with diseases and mental disorder, German Aegror sound like
a pretty sound affair to me. Although the
band likes to label itself with a combination of epic black metal and technical
death metal, I think what is most striking about Aegror's music the fact that
they embrace an almost light noted progressive accentuation of much of the
riffing throughout the album.
Overall, the technical level is very high and there is indeed lots of diversity
and atmosphere without losing sight of the red thread.
Aegror fits nicely into the contemporary black metal+ scene and, honestly, it is
a bit of a mystery to me that there is no label backing for this release since
it easily stands up against much of the competition out there.
Fans of e.g. Dimmu Borgir and the more avantgarde black metal outfits can easily
try this out!
