Fester - Silence 2011






The somewhat "forgotten" band Fester has been remastered & re-released by Abyss Records as a digi pack with new cover artwork & layout.
As I listen to this one it's not hard to tell what band it is. They have not changed their style much since the the first release,technical riff based tracks is what you get here,combined with some very nice melodies. The production,vocals & melodies are much better than on the debut "Winter Of Sin" At first I found it a bit boring,but after some more listening I discovered some great melodies. They have a lot of guitar solos that reminds me of classical heavy metal ,which is quite rare for black metal albums,but musically speaking this lends more towards technical death/thrash metal,but they sure as hell manage to create a beautiful atmosphere with this album.
I also prefer the vocals on this one compared to "Winter Of Sin", it's more whispering and not as screamy/agressive as earlier witch suits the music much better.
They have their own unique sound that differs quite much from other norwegian acts at that time.
Well worth checking out,if you haven't heard it before or want to check out some metal history.
