When you’re a heavily World War I-themed band, it’s hard to top releasing a record on the centenary anniversary of the Armistice. Thankfully, even after the gimmick has peaked, 1914 have more left in the locker musically.

Super psyched to hear this. New vinyl packages are available to pre-order and look beautiful.

What a surprise to hear the Eric Bogle cover version on this. Every Celtic folk fan loves this tragic anti-war anthem - I can't be the only one completely amazed by its inclusion!

Regarding the album - it's only my first listen, but what I heard I enjoyed a lot. This is going straight back on.

- Just learnt that Dropkick Murphys also covered 'The Green Fields of France' - didn't even know about that. Wonder if that's where 1914 heard it first....

While there are a few killer tracks in here, i think the album runs a bit too long and some songs could easily to cut down to 5 minutes. I appreciate the dynamics, where songs like Coward, Corps D'Autos-Canons-Mitrailleuses (A.C.M) and Don't Tread On Me (Harlem Hellfighters) all live in the same universe and complement each other so well. ...And A Cross Now Marks His Place sounds a bit like Marduk's La Grande Danse Macabre and Corps D'Autos-Canons-Mitrailleuses (A.C.M) sounds like Dimmu Borgir circa Death Cult Armageddon. Enjoyed this thing, it's better than their previous albums and i'll be on the lookout for future material.

Sounds like if Bolt Thrower decided to do black metal! I like the different perspectives (and languages) that are portrayed during the Great War

Sounds too pretty for my liking. Agree that it sounds like Black metal Bolt Thrower at times.

Way too much filler. They sure butchered The Green Fields Of France as well. I thought I would like this. Oh well.

In genre find new sounds are hard, but new lyrics and themes to sing about is cliché to success. Sabaton has few WWI songs, Skyforger has one WWI album, but band what sings about WWI is rare. This is key factor to success and band is here and pretty good rankings for Ukraina band.

Nisam ocekivao ovaj uvod albuma.

The intro is the old Serbian folk song from 1st world war "Tamo Daleko" [There, Far Away], that was sung after Serb army was forced to walk across Albanian mountains all the way to Greece, loosing thousands in the process, and finally recuperating at Greek island of Corfu where 5 thousand of them died and were burred at sea. The remaining soldiers returned to the front and fought its way to victory and freeing of Serbia.

Listening to this again... and it's still awesome! As I said before, Bolt Thrower + Black Metal + Doom =

Now the only issue is that I want Asphyx and 1914 to win awards this year. So the solution is:
Asphyx - Death Metal
1914 - Extreme Doom Metal

Come on, people, make it happen!

Blackened Death/Doom so they could fit in most categories. I still prefer Blind Leading the Blind tbh.

The DM albums I listened to most during 2021 were actually Revulsion and Frozen Soul. I initially loved Asphyx but didn't return to it much during the second half of the year whereas those two had regular spins.

After few spins finds it very repetitive and boring. Cant say the whole album is bad but nothing there to hold you much.
