Stripped down, first wave, heavy/black metal done right. Like a bare-bones Mercyful Fate, or less theatrical Death SS, HEXENBRETT keeps things simple in distilling this classic style down to what matters most. Occult themes sung in native German tongue, swaying from midtempo stompers to occasional sweeps of classic second wave Norwegian black metal. A bit similar and reminiscent of their Slavic peers in Malokarpaten, with the folklore element and influences, with moody, almost dungeon synth keys floating around in the background. Anybody with an inclination towards classic early black metal on the more traditional side should watch out for this one!
