Deadspace are a band from Australia that plays a very depressive form of black metal with elements of death rock and ambient and this is a review of their self released 2015 album "The Promise Of Oblivion".
Ambient style keyboards start off the album and they also mix in with the depressive black metal sound that kicks in a few seconds alter that also brings in a great amount of tortured screams and when they use solos and leads they remain true to a melodic musical direction and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
Elements of goth and death rock can be heard quite a bit throughout recording and the music can also be very atmospheric at times and also bring in a touch of post black metal along with a small amount of clean playing being added into certain sections of the recording and some songs also bring in a small amount of spoken word part.
You can also hear a great amount of melody being added into the guitar riffing as the album progresses and the whole recording sticks to mostly a slow or mid paced musical direction and on some songs the vocals almost get melodic and there are also a couple of tracks that are very long and epic in length.
Deadspace plays a style of depressive black metal that is very depressive, atmospheric and melodic sounding while also mixing in elements of ambient, post metal, goth and death rock, the production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics cover dark, depressive and suicidal themes.
In my opinion Deadspace are a very great sounding depressive black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "With Tears of Callous Lust" "Oblivion" and "In The Coldness Of the Darkest Night". 8 out of 10.
