On their third full-length album, "Es grauet", Ungfell abducts listeners on a sonic journey detailing moral ambivalence and treachery. Set in a seemingly idyllic rural village in pre-modern times, all is not as it seems. Tragedy strikes the town in the form of a horrific, grisly murder. Unfounded accusations lead the town further astray, while these occurences of debauchery exceed the comprehension of the local inhabitants. Alas, evil lurks where you may least expect it... The story unfolds, accompanied by ravaging riffs and gripping songwriting that appropriately underline the complex, yet harrowing narrative. "Es grauet" shows Ungfell at their most ambitious and most audacious, featuring incredibly dynamic and warm production values, emphasizing atmosphere even more than previous releases and managing to compliment the story being told.
Ungfell was spawned from an array of decrepit moon rites and woodland invocations in late 2014 by Menetekel, who remains the project's driving force to this day. During 2015 the demo, Demo (lition) was released, followed by a split (with Dakhma) in the same year and their debut full-length Tôtbringære in 2017. Mythen, Mären, Pestilenz reveals ten new Walpurgis black metal spells that continue the band's trademark sound; fusing filthy, rustic black metal conjurations and occasional folk instrumentation. A ferocious array of piercing riffs, marching percussions and tortured howls. Ungfell's second full-length presents Helvetic black metal deeply rooted in medieval lore and tales of pestilent witchcraft. Ghastly ghouls and sinister sorceresses rejoice in these utterances and sounds, gathered as one around the towering witch's pyre... as the hangman plays the last lead, the crimson night is not far
