The latest 7" from Hateworks is a split with Gormanudr (Germany/Romania/USA) and Fidelis (USA), both serve up here a ugly meal of death & suffering!
First off is Gormanudrs track "Kältetod"(means something like freeze to death) and it has a good sense of raw pessimistic/melancholic melody that is topped with Arilds harsh unwelcoming vocals, drums has a solid beat and the whole song i feel is one of the bands best track to date.
Cold festering misanthropy! Solid!
On side B comes Fidelis with their "Morning Mists in Blood" and it fits well on this split as they have similar main vibes as the previous band but also includes a bit more militant compositions(and rythm) and aggression, like if you look at the cover, first track is the icy heavy wandering up the mountain and this second one is a battle that follows. Sums up the release in a satisfying maner. like a short but mean story has been told.
7" releases can have a problem of not giving enough (not so long running time) to really make a mark in your memory but i feel this will be spun many more times.
And dont miss out on other coming releases thats out now and will come soon on Hateworks!
