Sorrow Plaques are a solo project from the United Kingdom that plays an atmospheric form of black metal and this is a review of his self released 2015 ep "An Eternity Of Solitude".
A very dark, raw and atmospheric black metal sound starts off the ep along with some ambient style synths and a few seconds alter the music speeds up and adds in high pitched screams and blast beats and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and you can also hear a touch of post rock and shoegaze in some parts of the songs.
The synths on the recording have a very dominant sound throughout the recording while the music still retains a raw black metal style and when solos and leads are utilized they are very dark and melodic sounding and also add elements of post black metal into the songs and there are also a couple of instrumental tracks present on the ep while most of the songs still use a great amount of vocals and noise soundcapes and clean playing can also be heard in certain sections of the recording.
Sorrow Plagues plays a style of black metal that is very modern and atmospheric sounding and also mixes in a decent amount of post rock, shoegaze, ambient and noise elements to add more creativity to the songs, the production sounds very dark, heavy and raw while the lyrics cover darkness, emptiness, solitude and sorrow.
In my opinion Sorrow Plagues are a very great sounding atmospheric black metal project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Corroding Soul" and "Acceptance". 8 out of 10.
