akunderhile They have achieved something amazing here. Somehow, abrasive and raw angst mixed with chilling aggressiveness creates an authentic atmosphere that truly reflects the terror of the Great War. If you had told me that black metal shrieks would work over a softly strummed acoustic guitar ,I would've said you were crazy, but Kaiserjägerlied makes it work. It's completely unexpected- a moment of calm, yet painful beauty that doesn't contradict the whole. Favorite track: Kaiserjägerlied.

Wound of Briccius An awesome, dark and brutal journey through the alpine front. Alpenpässe by MINENWERFER is an absolutely amazing album. The myriad of riffs and drums make the sound totally unique, and each song stands out on its own. I highly recommend this album to any BM fan, or anyone interested in WW1 metal. Favorite track: Kaiserjägerlied.

orakas This album at first may sound as just another basic black metal stuff. However, this is a whole lot more than that. Goosebumps, that is. Favorite track: Der Blutharsch.

OSMOSE PRODUCTIONS is proud to reissue MINENWERFER’s third album, Alpenpässe, on CD and vinyl LP formats.

Since their formation in 2007, MINENWERFER have pursued a proud 'n' pure vision of black metal idiosyncratically focused on World War I - idiosyncratic, in the sense that the band hail from America but mostly sing in German. What has resulted is a startlingly accomplished canon that has quietly built itself into prolific proportions, with their first album arriving in 2010, followed by albums in 2012 and 2019, and a slew of split releases and EPs in the interim.

That third album, Alpenpässe, is arguably MINENWERFER’s grandest work yet. While seven years separated it from its full-length predecessor, Nihilistischen, the payoff was well worth it: its six songs in nearly an hour are towers of incomparable might. Everything here is free and flowing, with the bountifully rising/falling melodies pulling at the listener's heartstrings and casting an ominous (and eminently playable) spell that simply needs to be experienced to be believed. This is MINENWERFER at their most powerful and poignant.

OSMOSE PRODUCTIONS have been fans of MINENWERFER for years, and is honored to unleash their once-underground back catalog on the wide scale it so deserves.
