Der Toten Lebend Schein hail from western Germany. The 3-track debut EP "...von Leichen bewohnt" is a dark signal that DTLS aspire to spread all over the planet. 7 years have passed since the extremely limited split album with Tåkeheim back in 2010, DTLS mature greatly and are capable of embodying various and moods and personalities over the course of nearly 20 minutes in this recording. Cold melodies soaked into the melancholic atmosphere, the band manifests a black metal world where exquisite melodies and hateful emotions co-exist in a harmonious manner.

Albums like this give me hope for black metal as a whole. This is a breathtaking, sweeping behemoth that will take you on a journey you may not want to come back from. It’s one of my favorite discoveries of the past five years, and I can only hope that they make more CDs. 100% recommended! admiral_stiffplank
