Ukraine's 1914 have been making waves ever since their 2015 debut Eschatology Of War and, now three albums into their career, have garnered significant critical acclaim. Musically they blend hardened, slow-to-mid-paced riffs, harsh blackened-vocals, and the occasional symphonic flourish, lending a air of sophistication even as the riffs bludgeon the listener. Lyrically they're all in on World War I (hence the band name) and related warfare-relate themes, showing a great deal of depth and conviction. If they can overcome the turmoil in their home country, 1914 should continue to mature and progress. This is a solid pick for majestic, doom-ish extreme metal.
