Truppensturm - Salute to the Iron Emperors (2010)

Aside from Nyogthaeblisz, Truppensturm may be the most hateful sounding band out there at the moment. In fact, I can't really think of any band in the history of metal that sounds this deadpan and abrasive. Call it Teutonic cruelty. Call it Truppensturm!

Yep, forget all of the homo's up in Norway standing in front of the mirror, slathering their faces with make-up. Truppensturm is where it's at.

Obviously Truppensturm are merely one of dozens upon dozens of many copycat versions of Blasphemy yet there's something particularly brutal about these guys and dare I say more convincing than your average worshiper of the unholy trinity (Sarcafago/Blasphemy/Beherit). When these fuckers hit go, I can guarantee you that there will be no survivors when the beating finally stops.

In many ways Truppensturm is the German counterpart to El Paso's Nyogthaeblisz what with their unrelenting savagery and perversion of all things "blackened" that almost seems to come from a place of disdain rather than mindless adoration. Aye, these are the wolves among sheep. With the Tsar Bomb on the horizon, the future looks bright indeed!
