Falaise are a duo from Italy that plays an atmospheric form of post black metal and this is a review of their self released 2015 album "As Time Goes By".
Clean guitar playing starts off the album along with some elements of ambient and spoken word parts in the background and after awhile the music starts getting more heavy and melodic and after the intro the music starts going into more of a post black metal direction along with some solos and leads that use a great amount of melody.
When the music speeds up the music goes fro more of a raw style of metal along with a great amount of blast beats and grim screams which are also over powered by the guitars and the music also brings in a great mixture of both clean and heavy parts and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
When synths are utilized they give the music more of an atmospheric and ambient feeling and a few of the tracks are very long and epic in length and some of the songs bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and some of the tracks also bring in elements of depressive black metal and blackgaze.
Falaise plays a style of post black metal that is very melodic and atmospheric while also bringing in a more aggressive take on the genre, the production sounds very powerful for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark and depressive themes.
In my opinion Falaise are a very great sounding atmospheric post black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Loveless" "No Destination" "Pointless" and "Waiting Time". 8 out of 10.
