WEICHE: “Versprecher” b/w “Rückzieher”: 7” EP

Heavy-as-shit, slow German metal, complete with guttural vocals and just absolutely crushing tone. The internet tells me that “Versprecher” means “slip of the tongue” and, in this case, the tongue may be slipping directly out of the mouth to allow for how deep from whence the vocals must come. The second song brings in some second guitar melodics that really keep the heaviness while adding another dimension. I’m into it and though admittedly limited in my knowledge of German anything, I deeply hope that my impression that this represents something essential about the German music scene is correct. –Theresa W.
