Der Blutharsch And The Infinite Church Of The Leading Hand - The End Of The Beginning

Psychadelic martial folk from industrial legends Der Blutharsch, with The End Of The Beginning, on Tesco. As per the more recent band orinted "Infinite Church Of The Leading Hand" releases, things sound dense, rhythmic, dark, and in the case of this release, more engaging and melodic than I've heard prior. Tracks meld the rock folk sound of prior albums with an incredible sense of purpose, and narrative. Each track sounds bigger than it's individual components, and the album feels more powerful and affecting than it's individual tracks. That's what I tend to enjoy about artists working in the neo folk and martial spaces, a sense of thematic and emotional conviction, and it's all over this tape. I find this an incredibly engaging release with an indescribably perfect sound.

Available in a variety of formats, gatefold CD, vinyl, and cassette. All of which may be obtained via my preferred industrial distro, Tesco USA.
