Eïs - With Full Force - Ferropolis, Germany - June 23, 2017

According to their Bandcamp, “Once, Eïs were Geïst. Under the latter name, the band released three highly-praised albums full of atmospheric Black Metal from 2005 to 2009: the furious and despondent "Patina," the melancholic and autumnal "Kainsmal," and the epic "Galeere" characterised by maritime motifs. Since 2010, the group has a new name and consolidates its status as a firm institution of the German Black Metal scene.” Apparently, they had to have a name change in 2010 because an alternative band Geïst from Cologne threatened to sue them.

They were covered in corpse paint and played melodic black metal, which reminded me of In Flames.
