4 stars "Angst" is the 3rd full-length studio album by German black metal act Todtgelichter. The album was released in December 2010 by Aural Music/Code666.

The music on "Angst" is by no means "regular" harsh black metal, nor is it black metal of the symphonic kind. Instead Todtgelichter plays a very eclectic form of black metal with progressive ideas, raw male vocals, clean female vocals and an at times goth tinged atmosphere. The album is as mentioned very eclectic and you can easily go from a harsh section black metal section to a melodic progressive section to a female fronted section over the course of one song. This might sound messy to some, but Todtgelichter are succesful in making the transitions between styles work seamlessly. In other words the styles are brought together in a natural way.

The production is clean and powerful and should speak to those who don't want their black metal too filthy.

"Angst" is an album that has taken a while to sink in for me, but it's a grower for sure. it's not always music as eclectic as this works for me, but I think Todtgelichter are succesful at what they do. "Angst" is an intriguing album deserving a 3.5 - 4 star rating.
