Starless Night are a duo from Florida that has been featured before in this zine and plays a depressive form of black metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Lost In Life's Endless Maze" which was released by SixSixSix Music.
Rain and nature sounds start off the album before going into a depressive black metal direction that also introduces grim screams onto the recording and the music at times speeds up and brings in more of a raw style of the genre along with a small amount of blast beats and you can also hear melodies being utilized in some of the riffing.
Some of the tracks are very long and epic in length and also bring in atmospheric elements at times and you can also hear clean playing and synths being utilized in certain sections of the recording and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and there are also some parts of the music that are in more of an ambient direction while the main focus remains more on a raw and depressive style of black metal and there is also a brief use of clean singing present on the recording.
Starless Night creates another black metal album that remains true to the raw and depressive direction of the previous recordings while also getting more melodic and atmospheric this time around, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover depression, paranormal, misanthropy, psychedelics, life, and hate.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Starless Night and if you are a fan of depressive black metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Deeper Through These Realms I Go" and "Time Heals Nothing When There Is No Good To See". 8 out of 10.
