A Diadem Of Dead Stars are a solo project from Greece that plays an ambient form of atmospheric black metal and this is a review of his self released 2015 ep "The Mist Bearer Pt.II"
Acoustic guitar playing starts off the ep and it also brings in elements of progressive and post rock onto the recording and after a minute the music starts going into a very fast, melodic and raw black metal direction that also utilizes a great amount of blast beats and you can also bear all of t he musical instruments that are present on t his recording.
When solos and leads are utilized they remain true to a very melodic and modern style of black metal and the atmosphere of ambient also mixes in the music quite a bit throughout t he recording along with the songs bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and there is also a brief use of grim depressive screams and both of the tracks are very long and epic in length and the music is mostly instrumental and classical guitars can also be heard in some parts of the recording and the second track is all ambient.
A Diadem Of Stars takes a very modern form of atmospheric black metal and mixes it in with ambient and a touch of post rock while still having a raw and aggressive edge which makes the music stand out a bit more, the production sound s very powerful and heavy while t he song themes focus around nature.
In my opinion A Diadem Of Stars are a very great sounding ambient, atmospheric black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "The Mist Bearer Pt.II". 8 out of 10.
