Aeonless are a duo with members from both Finland and Bulgaria that plays an atmospheric and depressive mixture of black and doom metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Underneath Horizons" which was released by Vacula Productions.
Classical music style synths start off the album and they also give the music an epic feeling and after the intro the music goes into a more heavy and atmospheric direction and adds in grim sounding black metal vocals and you can also hear a decent amount of melody in the bands musical style.
After awhile a great amount of doom metal elements and guitar leads which use a great amount of melody are added into the music and you can also hear clean melodic singing and spoken word parts being added into certain sections of the recording and the recording sticks to mostly a slow or mid paced direction.
As the album progresses the music starts to add in a few preludes along with clean and acoustic playing which also gives the music a more haunting atmosphere while the main focus remains on a heavier musical style and after awhile the vocals start utilizing more depressive sounding black metal screams and guitar riffing which is built upon a more black/doom metal foundation and at the times the vocals utilize a very deep and dark sound and throughout the album the band also bring in a few very long tracks which enhances the epic feeling of the recording.
Aeonless creates a very interesting sound with their music taking a blackened doom metal style and mixing it with the more atmospheric and depressive side of black metal as well as adding in a great amount of melody which results in a very diverse and melancholic sounding album, the production has a very heavy and powerful sound while the lyrics cover dark, depressive, misanthropic and melancholic themes.
In my opinion Aeonless are a very great sounding atmospheric and depressive mixture of black and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this duo. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Sword & Scythe" "Standards Of Misanthropy" "Vulture Of Decadence" and "Mountain Peak". 8 out of 10.
