U.K Black Metal, signed to Candlelight Records.
Eastern Front formed in October 2006 with a view to taking a new approach to Black Metal, which has been subsequently been labelled “War-Torn Black Metal”.
Musically, they retain a traditional Black Metal sound while encompassing elements of Doom, Death, folk and classical to create an atmosphere deemed essential when exploring the history of WWII, through music. Writing from a historically, subjective and personal standpoint, each track evokes an emotional experiences of battle, encompassing hope, pride, comradeship, misery, sorrow and victory. After 3 years of touring and building a loyal fan base Eastern Front signed to Candlelight Records in 2010 and released their debut album “Blood On Snow” September that year.
“Blood On Snow” was recorded and produced by Anders Backelin in Sweden at Andy LaRocque’s Sonic Train Studios and features a collaboration track by Les Smith (Anathema) and Brian Moss (DFA) entitled “Dvenadtzat Kilometrov ot Moskvy”. The album received excellent reviews worldwide including 9/10 in Powerplay Magazine, 13/15 in Legacy Magazine, 8.5/10 in Terrorizer Magazine and 4.5/6 in Zero Tolerance Magazine. Eastern Front have toured throughout the UK & Europe playing various shows and festivals including Bloodstock Open Air 2012 (UK), Dong Open Air 2012 (Germany), Chania Rock Festival 2010 (Crete, Greece), playing along side and sharing stages with: Behemoth, Carpathian Forest, Watain, Mayhem, Endstille, Shining, Primordial, Taake, Inquisition, Nile, Anaal Nathrakh, Belphegor, Cradle of Filth, Dimmu Borgir, Alcest, Negura Bunget, Nargaroth, Lord Belial, Graveworm, Skyforger, Winterfylleth, Alter of Plagues, HATE, The Rotted, Alice Cooper, W.A.S.P, Orange Goblin, Napalm Death, Sepultura and many more. Following a successful headline tour of the UK at the end of 2013 (sponsored by Terrorizer Magazine) Eastern Front entered HVR studios in Ipswich to record their second album for Candlelight records entitled 'Descent Into Genocide'.
Recorded and produced by Danny B (Lock Up/Pentagram/Criminal) 'Descent Into Genocide' (The title track inspired by the Babi Yar massacre of 1941) follows on directly from 'Blood On Snow' in it's brutal intent while expanding the bands musical and lyrical range to include varying vocal styles, musical instruments and a guest vocal performance from Zingultus (Vocalist of Endstille) to produce their most visceral and heartfelt release to date.
