This is a review of another recording from Unhappy which continues their depressive black metal sound but getting more experimental with the album being self released in 2013 and called "Songs Before My Suicide".
"Suicide Is A Gift" which is also the first song on the album opens up with fast, raw and primitive black metal guitar riffs, drum beats and high pitched black metal screams and after a minute the music goes into a more mid paced direction as well as alternating between fast and mid paced parts which also leads to some slow sections and towards the end there are some blast beats being utilized.
"Empty Words, Loneliness And Screams" begins with slow depressive black metal guitar riffs and drums before adding in grim sounding screams and the song sticks to the same type of riffs throughout the song.
"Between Suffer And Hopelessness" opens up with ambient style black metal guitars riffs, drums and depressive screams as well as melodies being thrown into the guitar playing and towards the end the drums speed up a bit and add in blast beats while the guitars stick to a slower direction.
"I Don't Want A Grave (I Want To Be Like Never Lived)" starts up with slow black metal guitar riffs, drums and grim, depressive screams and halfway through the song there are a small amount of primitive melodies being added to the guitar riffing.
"I Feel Numb And Helpless" kicks in with soft acoustic guitar playing along with some melodic clean singing vocals before adding in drums and there are no heavy guitars or black metal vocals being present on this song.
"Help Me!" hits it off with distorted clean guitar playing, drums and high pitched, grim sounding depressive black metal screams and towards the end elements of noise music are thrown into the song.
"i'm So Sick" makes it way in with heavy drone distortion coming form guitar amps and depressive black metal vocals which also lead up to some drum beats and a minute later t heir is a brief use of melodic yet sloppy guitar leads as well as a brief use of deep demonic growls.
"Kill Me Please (Live- Extremely Raw)" is introduced with acoustic guitars and depressive black metal screams along with some drums beats in the background and the song is another acoustic guitar piece and halfway through the song experimental sounds are added in.
"Rain Clods In My 'Minds' (Multiple Personality Disorder)" is brought in with folk music style acoustic guitars which utilize both finger picking and full chords before adding in drum beats and melodic clean singing vocals.
"And Finally Under the Ground (You'll Find Peace Of Mind)" creeps it way in with dark ambient synths and the song is an atmospheric ambient instrumental piece.
"Midnight Suicide Club (Live Acoustic Ambient Bonus Track)" which is also the last song on the album begins with experimental/ambient sounds and acoustic guitars before adding in melodic clean singing vocals as well as ambulance sounds in the background.
Song lyrics cover dark, depressive and suicidal themes, while the production has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Unhappy and if you are a fan of experimental, depressive black metal, you should check out this recording.
