Drudensang  are  a  band  from  Germany  that  plays  a  very  old  school  and  atmospheric  form  of  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2022  album  "Tuifsijtt"  which  was  released  by  Folter  Records.

  A  very  dark  sound  starts  off  the  album  along  with  some  keyboards  a  few  seconds  later  which  also  mixes  in  with  the  heavier  sections  of  the  songs  at  times.  Spoken  word  parts  can  also  be  heard  briefly  when  the  music  speeds  up  a  great  amount  of  tremolo  picking  and  blast  beats  can  be  heard  which  also  gives  the  tracks more  of  a  raw  feeling.

  Vocals  are  mostly  high  pitched  black  metal  screams  while  the  riffs  also  add  in  a  decent  amount  of  melody.   All  of  the  musical  instruments  on  the  recording  also  have  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them  along  with  the  songs  also  adding  in  a  good  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  and  the  riffs  also  add  in  a  lot  of  melody.

  The  music  also  has  its  atmospheric  moments  along  with  a  great  portion  of  the  tracks  also  being  very  long  and  epic  in  length.  Growls  can  also  be  heard  at  times  as  well  as  the  music  also  having  a  lot  of  old  school  influences,  when  guitar  solos  and  leads  are  utilized  they  are  also  done  in  a  very  melodic  style  and  a   couple  of later  songs  also  introduces  acoustic  guitars  and  spoken  word  parts  onto  the  album.  The  production  sounds  very  dark  and  raw  while  the  lyrics  are  written  in  Lower  Bavarian/Austrian  and  cover  the  Krampus,  Perchtencult,  Witchcraft  and  the  Evil  Spirits  of  the  twelve  nights  between  the  years.     

  In  my  opinion  Drudensang  are  a  very  great  sounding  atmospheric  and  old  school  black  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INLUDE  "Hexntreyber"  "Tuifsijtt"  and  "Raserey  der  Krampen".  8/5  out  of  10. - occultblackmetalzine

Location: Bavarian Forest / Lower Bavaria

In 2013 Drudensang crawled out from the depths of Bavarian Forest, the border triangle of Germany, Austria and the Czech Republic. It emerged from the band Ravnsvart, which was founded in 2009 by Krámpn. In 2013, the first demo "Rehearsal 1 – Dunkle Tradition" was released. Further releases (demos, live albums, EPs and splits) followed at regular intervals. DRUDENSANG represents the devil worship in combination with the ancient devilish myths and traditions of bavaria and austria. The focus is on the Krampus- and Perchtencult, witchcraft and the evil spirits of the twelve nights between the years (Rauhnächte).

The first demos were still characterised by a very raw style, which over the years was refined further and further into the sound that is currently typical for Drudensang: atmospheric Black Metal with an old school touch as the perfect soundtrack to the wild doings and wild hunts of Krampen and Perchten during the Rauhnächten. The name Drudensang is made up of the words “Drude”, a witch creature from the Bavarian Forest, a kind of night alb, and “Sang”, an old german word for curse, today used as “chant” and “death wail“.

Drudensang has been performing regularly since 2015. These performances are celebrated with ritualistic intensity. Together with Bands such as Eminenz, Crimson Moon, Taake, Urn, Amystery, Strid, Ancient, Krater, etc. each time delivering an intense orgy of blackest repulsion with blood, cadavers, spikes, fire, mould and death.

Infos about the album Tuiflsrijtt:

The album "Tuiflsrijtt" was unleashed on Walpurgis Night 2022 via Folter Records.

"Tuiflsrijtt" is Bavarian/Austrian for “devil's ride” and associates the wild hunts of Drudensang, Krampus and the history behind the Krampus figure (myth, legend and tradition).
The album functions as a bridge across the borders of this world to the devil's realm and the Rauhnächte, conjuring not only the dark Krampus figure who tortures the flesh with his rods and chains and carries off the doomed souls, but also the essence of the Drude, who torments her victims, Perchten, who take the souls away to the realm of the dead and the raging demons of the Wild Hunt.

Musically, "Tuiflsrijtt" is a consistent further development of the existing concept. Atmospheric Black Metal with an old school touch, which, however, has clearly increased in speed and aggressiveness compared to previous releases.

Krámpn's nagging, snarling vocals, the icy-sawing guitars, purposefully used dark keyboard passages, the heavily distorted but powerful bass and the massive drums conjure up the dark magic of the stormy Krampus time and the bitterly cold Rauhnächte, pulling the listener across the borders down into hell.

The lyrics written in dialect (Lower Bavarian/Austrian) authentically round off the picture.
