Lebenssucht are an international band with members from Bulgaria, Belgium, Austria and Germany that has had music reviewed before in this zine and on this recording plays a very atmospheric form of depressive black metal and this is a review of their 2020 album "-273,15°C" which will be released in April by Thanatoskult Records.
Melodic guitar leads start off the album while a great portion of the tracks are also very long and epic in length. Vocals are mostly grim yet depressive black metal screams along with the riffs also adding in a decent amount of melody and when the music speeds up a lot of blast beats can be heard.
When tremolo picking is utilized it also gives the music more of a raw feeling while the songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. All of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them as well as the tracks also having their atmospheric moments.
Most of the tracks are also very long and epic in length as well as one of the songs also introducing clean playing onto the recording. At times the vocals get very deep sounding bringing in a few death metal growls, synths can also be heard briefly. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and depressive themes.
In my opinion t his is another great sounding album from Lebenssucht and if you are a fan of atmospheric and depressive black metal, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "
