Abandoned By Light are a 1 man band from the United Kingdom that plays a very depressive form of black metal and this is a review of his 2014 album "This Is Where it Ends" which was released by Senseless Life Records.
Rain sounds start off the album along with some humans in torture which leads up to a very slow and raw black metal sound along with some grim screams a few seconds later and the music sounds raw enough to the point where you can hear the guitar picks and the amp sounds like it is one of the cheaper products.
Deep growls are added into the music at times and after awhile clean playing as well as some acoustic guitars and melodic singing become a part of the album while still sticking to a raw and heavier direction and after awhile spoken word samples find their way into the music and once you get a little more into the tracks you can hear some melody in the guitars while it is done in a more sloppy manner.
When whispers are utilized the music starts having a more grim feeling to it and the music also starts getting faster on some of the other tracks while lacking the power of better equipment which would make the music sound better and the last track is very long and epic in length.
Abandoned By Light are probably one of the most unprofessional depressive black metal projects I have heard while the music still is enjoyable and different at the same time, the production is very raw, amateur and garage like while the lyrics cover dark and depressive themes.
In my opinion Abandoned By Light are a very decent sounding raw and depressive black metal project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Under the Black Sky...Alone" "Cages of Regret" and "Empty Cries Of Isolation". 7/5 out of 10.
