Prussian Blood is a raw, aggressive slab of bleak, productionless black metal that hits cold and quick as a Chicago ice storm. Somme has crafted an exceptional entry in the genre, and while I often prefer my black metal a little more atmospheric with a little more production, I really did enjoy Prussian Blood as a soundtrack to the day’s lift. It’s a short listen, closer to an EP than a full length, but it’s packed with enough blasting drums and shrieking riffs to leave you satisfied. Prussian Blood came out March 15th.
And there’s the week. Keep lifting, keep reading, and I’ll see you next week.
