This is another review of an ep from Starless Nights which continues their raw and primitive depressive black metal sound with the ep being called "The Depression Lingers V: The Final Chapter" which was released by Broken Limb Recordings.
Drums range from slow to mid paced drumming which gets slightly faster than the previous recording while not utilizing blast beats, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars, as for the synths which are only used briefly they bring a very dark, atmospheric and ambient sound to the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast depressive black metal riffs that utilize a great amount of raw and primitive elements as well as capturing a dark atmosphere as well as some heavy distortion and there are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording, as for the acoustic guitars they are only used briefly and use finger picking to enhance the dark atmosphere of the recording.
Vocals are mostly grim sounding depressive black metal screams with some deep demonic growls being utilized at times as well as a brief use of clean singing, while the lyrics cover dark and depressive themes, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it with the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion this is another great sounding ep from Starless Nights and if you are a fan of raw and primitive depressive black metal, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACK "A New World Beyond All Comprehension". RECOMMENDED BUY.
