Lilitu are a band from Georgia that started out as a more atmospheric dark/black metal band but evolved into an atmospheric melodic black/death metal band with t his is a review of their 2004 album "The Delores Lesion" which was released by The End Records.
Drums range from s low to mid paced drumming with only a small amount of fast playing and blast beats being present on this recording, while the keyboards are very dark, progressive and atmospheric sounding, as for the bass playing it has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars and at times they have a very powerful sound to them.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine dark, black, doom, and melodic death metal together to create a sound of their own, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding black/death metal guitar solos and leads, as for the acoustic guitars when t hey are utilized they use finger picking and full chords to add some progressive elements to the recording.
Vocals are mostly high pitched black/melodic death metal screams and growls with some clean singing being utilized at times as well as a brief use of spoken word parts and female vocals, while the lyrics cover dark and depressing themes, a s for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound to it with a couple of the songs being long and epic in length and you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Lilitu are a very great sounding hybrid of dark, black, doom and melodic death metal and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Dolores Lesion" "Desolation Breeds" and "Dark Haired Girl". RECOMMENDED BUY.
