Die Oberherren - Die By My Hand

Die Oberherren
Die By My Hand

Metal maniacs, rejoice! I am proud to present to you: DIE OBERHERREN; signed via Svart Records, hailing from Swedish grounds - performing Goth Rock, on the debut full-length studio album entitled: "Die By My Hand"  (released 27/01/2023). The unknown band in question (the only reliable information I could find is that members included are from THE COFFINSHAKERS, GHOST, THE MOBILE MOB FREAKSHOW & GEHENNAH, I couldn't find anything else on the world wide web, sadly) have only this here debut full-length studio album in their discography so far entitled: "Die By My Hand". 8 tracks ranging around 33 minutes; DIE OBERHERREN arranges an intricately designed formula on some heavy-hitting Goth Rock amalgamations.

Opening up with this synthetic soundscape of symphonious symbolism; "The Horned One Stabs" elements at a groovy chop in catchy execution in euphonic grittiness, slabbing mythical maelstrom stability that synergies with organic substance & monolithic tempo. Forging a hybrid experimentation on riveting remedy; this tremolo raising crescendo flamboyantly injects an infectious yet sulphurous melody on virtuoso symphony, where "By The End Of The Shore" crafts a dexterously dynamic calamity in unique orchestration that ramifies with this melancholic strife on seamless zeal that's got GHOST & QUEEN written meticulously everywhere here. The mellifluous archetype Joakim Knutsson demonstrates here articulates in a complex creativity in jazzy songwriting musicianship that's prodigiously splendid whilst performed solo.

"Catrine" showcases strident rock anthem-esque frolics; fabricating a distilled furore on outré panache & rollicking nimbleness, manifesting this majestic yet quintessential persistence on persevering rumbles of reverberating sturdiness whilst tightly punchline potency implements a dense but boisterously bouncy frenzy in captivating instrumental intrigue that's most vivacious.  "The Blood Or Our Wine" materialises vibrant tonality; solidified with profusely robust technicalities on progressively distinguished distinctives that supplies jumpy riffage & salubriously engaging characteristics in entrancing but enthralling musical transitions which portrays feel-good listening vigour that's prestigiously rigorous to boot.

An exuberant buoyancy compiles a distilled integrity on rhythmic rock transparencies; where venomous versatilities utilise weighty hooks and immersive aesthetics in diversely diligent musical material that systematically towers with flexible fundamentals in grandiose grandeurs of melodic quirkiness,  profound within the cathartic attributes in "Clans of Darkness and Smoke". "Guns & Pills" constructs an alt-like goth rock ricochet; harbouring heralding chimes with upbeat orchestration, vocally… throaty but clean pipes sing with soothing yet sweet sound tonality & while relished with this rough somewhat juxtaposition that's performed with professional sophistication on potentially talented skill which is epically efficacious for all ears indelibly.

The penultimate rocker "Black Nightshade" has an equally elegant sublimity on sanguine grips; exquisitely harnessing a fancy flair that merges well with the goth-like atmosphere and ebullient transparencies that make for a dainty impact whilst marvelling through the piercing expertise in dazzling but hypnotic allure this one man excels at. Overall concluding "Die By My Hand" with the finale: "Something Wicked; nothing but an enjoyably entertaining experience comes out of this record, pursuing with striking foundations in borderline finesse and radical ramifications on spellbinding Goth Rock justifiability that's worthy of spinning a couple of times - do check it out should you fancy a healthy dose of this justifiable subgenre.
