Eyelessight are a band from Italy that plays a very depressive form of post black metal and this is a review of their self released 2014 album "Mantra Per Sopravvivere Inutilmente".
Tragic sounding pianos which also return again onlater songs start off the album and after the intro the music starts bringing in clean playing which is in more of a post rock direction and most of the songs are very long and epic in length and after a minute the music gets more heavier and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
When vocals are added into the music they use of good mixture of both clean singing and high pitched depressive black metal screams and the song also bring in a great amount of atmospheric elements and when they add acoustic guitars in certain sections of the recording it gives the music more of a progressive feeling while the solos and leads bring in more of a melodic post black metal feeling and when the music speeds up the band starts adding in more of a raw style and blast beats and one of the songs also bring in a brief use of female vocals.
Eyelessight plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in melodic post black metal which they also mix in with depressive black metal to create a very dark and tragic sounding recording, the production sounds very raw yet heavy at the same time while the lyrics are written in Italian and cover solitude, melancholy, nostalgia, memories and loss.
In my opinion Eyelessight are a very great sounding depressive post black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Mantra" and "Anelo". 8 out of 10.
