heavymetalweatherman The melodies on this album are so heart-wrenching. Reminds me of Vemod at their best or other elite bands of this style like Wędrujący Wiatr or ColdWorld. This one is special. Favorite track: Emotionale Ödnis.

Patrick Hogan I fell in love with this album when it first released, got the CD, then vinyl and Hoody. Every time I revisit this it is warm/cozy and nostalgic in a melodic way, but still icy cold at the same time. Some of the tremolo riffs on this album are pure melodic bliss mixed in with desperate screaming vocals that give it that warm/cold feeling. I’m really hoping these guys are working on a new album because I’m so ready for it.

Swiss Black Metal is no new card on the table. Cultivated by the likes of Hellhammer/Celtic Frost and Samael early on, and bands such as Darkspace and Paysage D´Hiver in more recent years, this rather small country has always had an excellent leading artistry; and it's no less so with the likes of Tardigrada.

Emotionale Ödnis (emotional wasteland) marks the band`s debut record that follows up on their already excellent demonstration mark "Widrstand" from 2012 and rare live performances.With all lyrics mainly done in the swiss dialect, Tardigrada present a darkly melancholic voyage; lush with atmosphere and texture.

Recorded and finalized at Iguana Studios and featuring custom artwork by Misanthropic Art, 'Emotionale Ödnis' sets the listener on a bleak sonic journey over the duration of 60 minutes. Intertwined with instrumental passages, just like a flickering dull light carried through a colourless landscape, it is a prime example of deep breathing, sorrowful black metal; ripe in execution and character.
