This is another review of a recording from A Cackle Or A Coughing Fit which continues their original form of experimental black metal with the album being self released in 2012 and "Keep The Lights Burning".
"Spirit In A Room" starts off with a banjo playing soft and then going into a fast black metal riff which is also on the same instrument along with the grim screams and as the song moves on whistles make their way into the music.
"The Lighthouse And The Storm" starts off with guitar amplifier noise and a guitar lead which leads to power chords which slowly starts adding in melody drumming and high pitched black metal screams which utilize depressive and suicidal elements.
"Tunnel" starts of with some clean guitar playing with post rock elements in the background staying that way for awhile before the drums kick in and the guitars get faster with pop punk melodies as well as some clean singing which leads up to heavier doom elements and suicidal black metal screams and cries along with a dark guitar lead which shows up slowly after that before adding in more clean playing and reverb while not forgetting about the screams and cries.
"Tremble" starts off with a few seconds of silence before some clean and distorted guitar playing comes in with some beginner style guitar leads before kicking off into some mid paced black metal riffing and depressive screams and cries as well as drum beats and the song closes with pop punk elements.
"You Are Welcome Here Until The Cold Takes You" starts off with melodic chanting along with sound effects in the background with no musical instruments being present on this song but there is a brief use of black metal style vocals.
Lyrics on this album cover dark, depressive and humorous themes, while the production has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it with most of the songs being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from A Cackle Or A Coughing Fit and if you are looking for something that is very original, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Spirit In A Room" and "Tunnel". RECOMMENDED BUY.
