This is a review of another recording from Abandoned By Light which continues his raw approach to depressive black metal with the album being released by Senseless Life Records in the year of 2014 and called "On Broken And Rotted Dreams, Suicide Took Flight".
Thunder and rain sounds start off the album along with some suicide and depressive cries and screams and after the intro clean playing starts to become a powerful presence on the recording as well as some slow, dark and heavy riffing which also leads up to some grim screams and a more depressive black metal direction.
Melodies on the album have a very distorted and sloppy sounding feeling to them which are also close to doom metal at times and as time goes on the guitars start having a more upbeat sound to them and the music starts to have a more raw feeling when fast parts start making their way into the tracks along with a small amount of death metal growls.
A good portion of the songs are very long and epic in length and while the music does not have a great amount of talent there still is a good amount of diversity presented on the album along with a small amount of dark ambient sounds when synths are utilized and there are also some hateful, violent and depressive spoken word samples on one of the tracks and the last song is a Nocturnal Depression cover tune.
This is a very better sounding recording from Abandoned By Light while it still has what i would call an amateur depressive black metal sound, the production is very dark and raw while the lyrics cover dark, depressive and suicidal themes.
In my opinion this is another decent sounding album from Abandoned By Light and if you are a fan of depressive black metal, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Live.Hate.Die.Repent" "Frost At A Funeral" "Life Is A String Of Winds" and "Misanthropic Black Metal Noise". 7/9 out of 10.
