During their years of activity KOMMANDANT showed how consistency can match in a constructive way with progression forging a solid extreme metal aggression.
The misappropriate ear can easily point out how a crossover of Black Metal & Brutal Death can be a label for KOMMANDANT, but the story is far more complex. “Blood Eel” is the most obvious symptom of this artistic path.
The production is taking the coldness of the ’90 bm fetish to a professional and powerful soundscape where all instruments take part to the murderous party.
Drums performance is huge and if any reference can be recalled as the Marduk capability of Panzer Division, this one meets the darker and oppressive side of Black Metal on the guitars side.
Following the eureka moment of the cover the cruelty of human nature meets the purity and apparent starlit calm of the cosmos, with something breeding on the background ready to explode. The moment after the first atmospheric suspense of the intro is a storm of aggression, where the few moments of peaceful interludes just make the whole thing even more impressive.
KOMMANDANT put them in some way on the same fields of bands like for example Marduk & Infernal War, but add to this monolithic strength the subconscious shading of their conceptual stream.
Living on ages of confusion and scorn the sound of a solid renaissance is passing by a hammer of destruction.
