This is a review of another album from Melkor which continues the atmospheric black metal sound of his previous recordings with the album being self released in 2014 and called "Irrlicht".
A very dark and melodic sound starts off the album before adding in more of a heavier and atmospheric direction which also keeps the melody and after a minute grim screams are added onto the recording and when solos and leads are added into the music they bring in more of a modern atmospheric black metal sound.
A good amount of acoustic guitars can be heard throughout the recording and a good portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length and a good portion of the songs also bring in a small amount of folk influences and some of the tracks bring in more of a doom and post black metal feeling and most of the music sticks to more of a slow to mid paced direction and as the album progresses the music gets more epic.
Melkor continuing the atmospheric black metal sound of previous recordings while also adding in a post metal feeling and a doom metal element while the music remains true to his style while also expanding, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics are written in German and cover nature, solitude and grief.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Melkor and if you are a fan of atmospheric black metal, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Spiegalwand" "Pangaea" and "The Great Defender". 8 out of 10.
