My Dying World "Mako" are a duo from Ukraine that plays a very atmospheric and depressive form of black metal and this is a review of their self released 2014 album "My Dying World... and Life".
Rain sounds and clean playing starts off the album before adding in heavy guitars a few seconds later and you can also hear the bass guitar in the background along with the music also bringing in a decent amount of melody and most of the tracks are very long and epic in length and they also bring in a good mixture of both clean and heavy parts.
The heavy and melodic aspects of the album bring in a very dark and depressive sound and after a few instrumentals high pitched suicidal black metal screams are added into the music along with a small amount of deep death metal growls and at times the music also brings in fast, raw tremolo picking and blast beats and on few of the tracks also brings in samples of a car crashes and hospitals and later on spoken word parts are added into the music briefly and these elements add more depressive elements to the music which also keeps around its raw black metal roots.
My Dying World "Mako" plays a style of depressive black metal that is very raw and sticks to mostly a slow style while also having its fast moments as well as bringing in a great amount of melody and this is one of the better albums that has came out recently for this sub genre of black metal, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover depressive, melancholic and apathy themes.
In my opinion My Dyinf World "Mako" are a very great sounding atmospheric, depressive black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Crying Fake Soul" and "Oppressive Lie". 8 out of 10.
