Unru – Als Tier ist der Mensch nichts

Unru is a four piece band from Germany. This march they released their debut album called ”Als Tier ist der Mensch nichts”. In german it means ”even as an animal, man is nothing”. Four tracks are included in this release. These four tracks form an impressive album of what i would like to describe as new age black metal. First track is called ”Zerfall und Manifest”. I think that Zerfall means decay but i’m not sure though (please forgive my poor german. Pons.de to the rescue). It was the kind of song that made me think ”o.k you’ve got my attention”. I loved this track’s intro. It kinda reminded me of Einstuerzende Neubauten. Second track is called ”Das Anna Karenina Prinzip”. Great atmospheric black metal is the case here, a sound similar to Downfall of Gaia’s latest release. ”Hedonee” is probably the album’s best track. We’ re talking about ten minutes of dirge. Cold as fuck, it will make you feel quite uncomfortable. Last but not least we have ”Totemiker”. Cool song for sure. Personally, i enjoyed this album and i have nothing negative to say about it whatsoever. Loved their vocals, their riffs, and their genuine sound. Therefore i wish to recommend it.
