Lonesummer/There Are Few Tomorrows For Feeding Our Worries/Music Ruins Lives/2011 Full Length Review


  This  is  a  review  of  another  recording  from  Lonesummer  which  continues  their  hybrid  sound  of  raw  black  metal,  experimental  and  shoegaze  with  the  album  being  called  "There  Are  Few  Tomorrows  For  Feeding  Our  Worries"  which  was  released  by  Music  Ruins  Lives.

  "I  Hope  You  Miss  Me  Now,  Because  I  Want  You  To  Know  How  Much  It  Hurts"  begins  with  some  clean  guitar  playing  and  spoken  word  parts  which  in  return  leads  to  some  background  sounds  and  post  rock  elements  kicking  in  and  a  minute  later  drum  programming  and  heavy  guitar  riffs  start  making  their  presence  known  along  with  some  melodic  leads.

  "Worries  And  Weariness"  begins  with  some  heavy  post  metal  guitar  riffs  and  drums  which  leads  to  some  melodic  parts  getting  mixed  in  while  keeping  around  the  heaviness  and  towards  the  end  you  can  hear  some  guitar  leads.

  "Tobacco,  Gin,  and  Bile"  begins  with  some  clean  guitar  playing  and  spoken  word  samples  along  which  nature  sounds  in  the  background  which  leads  up  to  some  melodic  clean  singing.

  "Ghost  Stories"  begins  with  some  fast  and  primitive  black  metal  guitar  riffs,  programmed  drum  beats  and  depressive  screams  and  cries  and  after  awhile  it  starts  slowing  down  a  bit.

  "All  My  Bitterness  Is  Regret"  begins  with  some  melodic  clean  guitar  playing  and  experimental  sound  effects  along  with  some  distorted  background  guitar  noises.

  'The  Sweetest  Of  The  Sweetest  Dreams"  begins  with  some  clean  post  rock  guitar  riffing  and  drum  programming  which  in  return  leads  to  some  melodic  clean  singing  and  after  awhile  it  gets  faster  and  mixes  in  some  black  metal  elements  in  the  riffing.

  "To  Make  Things  Good  Again"  begins  with  some  clean  guitar  playing  before  the  drum  programming  and  melodic  guitar  leads  make  their  way  into  the  song  as  well  as  some  high  pitched  black  metal  screams  along  with  some  heavy  guitar  rhythms.

  "There Are Few Tomorrows For Feeding Our Worries"  begins  with  some  soft  acoustic  guitar  playing  and  after  awhile  it  mixes  in  some  melodic  and  distorted  post  rock  elements  and  this  song  serves  as  an  instrumental  along  with  some  drum  programming  making  its  way  in  the  mix  towards  the  end.

  "You're  Ash  To  Me"  begins  with  programmed  drum  beats  and  heavy  guitar  riffs  and  after  awhile  high  pitched  depressive  black  metal  screams  make  their  presence  known  as  well  as  some  melodic  elements  being  thrown  into  the  guitars  as  well  as  some  shoegaze  style  lead  guitars.

  'Dream  Me  Free"  begins  with  some  experimental  sounding  synths  which  in   return  leads  to  some  melodic  clean  singing  and  after  awhile  their  are  some  folk  instruments  being  thrown  into  the  mix.

  "Clouded  Eyes  and  Candlelights"  begins  with  a  spoken  word  part  before  heading  into  programmed  drums  and  black  metal  guitar  riffs  which  in  return  brings  in  some  high  pitched  depressive  screams  and  the  song  also  mixes  in  primitive  elements.

  "Despair  Will  Hold  A  Place  In  My  Heart,  a  Bigger  One  Than  You  Do"  begins  with  some  clean  guitar  playing  along  with  some  background  sound  effects.

  "For  Just  One  Warm  Day"  begins  with  some  clean  shoegaze  style  guitar  playing  along  with  some  drum  programming  kicking  in  after  awhile  along  with  some  accordians  and  after  awhile  you  can  hear  some  heavy  guitar  riffing  and  shoegaze  style  guitar  leads.

  Song  lyrics  cover  family,  loneliness  and  death,  while  the  production  has  a  very  dark,  raw  and  primitive  sound  to  it.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Lonesummer  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  black  metal,  experimental  and  shoegaze,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Ghost  Stories"  "To  Make  Things  Good  Again"  "You're  Ash  To  Me"  and  "Clouded  Eyes  and  Candlelights".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
