A rerelease of a very limited cdr with one extra track. Necropolis is from Russia, makes very dark ambient which reminds me of Têhom. The music is moody, sometimes a bit too monotous, but has a nice dark atmosphere and great artwork.
Cold Spring is always on the hunt for new talents and frequently this hunt is succesfull. I didn’t know Kriegsfall-U, even though they seem to have released a split 7” with Wappenbund. This debut cd is announced thus: “Musically, you may compare Kriegsfall-U with Turbund Sturmwerk, Wappenbund, Les Joyaux De La Princesse, Sophia, early Der Blutharsch… “. Well, I don’t agree, fortunately not! Not a new bombastic industrial clone, but nice and martial ambient and industrial more reminding of Sturmovik or Karceral Flesh than the bands in the Cold Spring ad. From nice and dark to pretty heavy industrial with here and there a noisy touch. Better than I expected and different than announced. <24/8/05><3>
