Herrschaft are a band from France that plays a mixture of electro, industrial and death metal and this is a review of their 2013 album "Les 12 vertiges" which was released by Code666 Records.
The album starts out with atmospheric sounds before going into a more electro/industrial direction along with heavy guitars and drums which leads to a mixture of growls and screams as well as bringing in female vocals and alternating between industrial and metal sounds along with a small amount of spoken word parts.
As the album continues it sticks to a very extreme style of industrial and extreme metal while style being electro enough to appeal to the rivethead crowd and elements of gothic music are also brought into the recording and after awhile the synths bring in traces of symphonic music to the recording as well as some clean singing industrial rock style vocals.
When we got more into the album acoustic guitars are brought into certain sections of the recording while also remaining heavy all at the same time while also getting more dark as time goes on by as well as the bass guitars getting more powerful sounding and on the last song they bring in a small amount of guitar leads.
Herrschaft bring a lot of diversity and originality to their music while there music is mostly in the electro industrial section they also bring in the heaviness and death and extreme metal to create a sound only they can call their own.
Song lyrics cover post apocylpse themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Herrschaft are a very great sounding mixture of electro, industrial and extreme metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Gates To Dreams" "Seducing Dementia" "Allmighty" and "Mephedron Trip". 8 out of 10.
