Klabautamann
Smaragd
Company: Zeitgeister Music
Release: 2017
Genre: Black
Reviewer: Greg Watson
Published: 4/14/2017

Beautifully crafted progressive black/folk metal from Germany
Comments:
Klabautamann plays a enchanting blend of progressive black metal with folk elements and jazz moments sprinkled in. You will get songs that start out with really majestic acoustic guitar riffs that give way to cacaphonous black metal riffs that are ensconced by clean, sonorous vocals and raspy, buzzing snarls. Each song is a different musical journey that pushes and pulls you in different directions and feels a lot like a roller coaster ride with all the ups and downs you'll experience. 'Smaragd' is an album of impressive chance taking, excellent musicianship and captivating tracks. Definitely a dark horse to make my Best of 2017 list.
Recommended for fans of:
Green Carnation, Ved Buens Ende
