This is another review of a recording from Twilight Fauna with the musical style being an atmospheric form of depressive black metal with folk elements and this is a review of their 2013 album "Grief" which was released by Depressive Illusions Records.
"Isolation" starts off with some dark and slow black metal guitar riffing with some dark sounding melodies being utilized which in return leads to some drum beats and after awhile depressive screams and cries make their presence known along with some post rock semi guitar leads, a couple of minutes acoustic guitars make their way into the music and the heavier instruments vanish, but after after a few seconds.
"Anger" starts off with some soft acoustic guitars and percussion which leads to some distorted guitars and grim singing that utilizes a melodic tone and after awhile the song gets more diverse and changes the pace around a bit and the acoustics close the song.
"Bargaining" starts off with some soft acoustic guitars which use both finger picking and full chords and after that a melodic distorted guitar lead combines with the acoustics setting up the mood for t he dark depressive black metal guitar riffs and grim vocals while also keeping the acoustic guitars around as well as switching back and forth between soft and heavy parts along with some spoken word parts being mixed in at times.
"Depression" starts off with folk music acoustic guitar playing which leads to some heavy guitar riffs mixing with the acoustics as well as some drum beats and after awhile depressive leads mix in with the heavy rhythms setting up the mood for some grim and depressive vocals, as the song moves on you can hear some open note riffs and spoken word parts nad after a few minutes the song closes with t he acoustic guitar playing.
"Acceptance" begins with some acoustic guitar playing and percussion beats which in returns leads to some melodic clean singing and after a minute heavier guitars make their presence known in the song along with a melodic guitar lead that makes its way into the mix a minute later and towards the end the song switches back and forth between the heavy and soft parts.
Song lyrics cover depressive themes, while the production has a very dark, raw and primitive sound with the songs being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Twilight Fauna and if you are a fan of folk orientated atmospheric, depressive black metal, you should add this album to your collection. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Isolation" and "Depression". RECOMMENDED BUY.
