Lifeless are a band from Mexico that plays an ambient form of depressive black metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Inner Shouts From A Sad Soul" which was released by Vacula Productions.
Smooth ambient sounds start off the album along with a good portion of the tracks being very long and epic in length and on the second track the music starts going for more of an atmospheric black metal direction along with a great amount of depressive screams and cries and they also mix in the ambient synths in with the heavier parts.
Depressive sounding melodies can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording and some parts of the songs also add in a small amount of female vocals and the solos and when also stick to a very dark and melodic musical direction and the tracks also bring in a great amount of cle4an playing into certain sections of the recording and you can also hear a touch of post black metal in the bands musical style and the whole album also sticks to either a slow or mid paced musical direction.
Lifeless plays a style of depressive black metal that is very atmospheric and melodic while also mixing in elements of ambient and post rock, the production sounds very dark and powerful while the lyrics cover suicide, nature, wilderness, depression and melancholy themes.
In my opinion Lifeless are a very great sounding ambient, depressive black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Forgotten Voices On The Dreary Water" "Misery" and "Painful Life". 8 out of 10.
