"Saga Guerriere" is the 2nd full-length studio album by French death metal act Kampfbund. The album was released through TB Records in 2011.
The lyrics are in French and deal with the European resistance against Turkish invasions throughout the last nearly 1000 years. Apparently the band come from a RAC metal background, so without being able to further explore the lyrics as my French language knowledge is limited, I´m assuming the lyrics or at least the intention behind the lyrics are of a RAC nature.
The music is death metal with an epic battle mentality, and bearing in mind that the lyrics describe historic battles the band have successfully paired music and lyrics and as a consequence the album has a nice flow and appear cohesive. The music features both thrashy and death´n´roll ideas too. The vocals are brutal and unintelligible growls. The musicianship and the sound production are pretty standard and to my ears though. The production in particular is even a little below standard.
"Saga Guerriere" is a decent album by Kampfbund and providing you can accept the lyrical concept/content, I think it´s worth a listen. A 3 star (60%) rating is warranted.
