Lluvia are a solo project from Mexico that has been featured before in this zine and plays an atmospheric form of black metal and this is a review of his 2015 album "Eternidad Solemne" which was released by Hellthrasher Productions.
Water sounds start off the album along with some ambient style synths and after the intro the music goes into a very fast, raw and melodic black metal direction along with a great amount of blast beats and grim screams and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
A great portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length and the solos and leads also bring in a great amount of melody and they also mix the heavy and atmospheric parts together and there are also a couple of ambient instrumental on the album while acoustic guitars and clean playing can also be heard in certain sections of the recording and when thunder sounds are utilized they give the music more of a depressive atmosphere.
On this recording Lluvia plays a style of black metal that is very atmospheric and melodic while also having its raw and depressive moments and bringing in a touch of ambient to create a very haunting sounding recording, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics are written in Spanish and cover war, hate, and nationalism themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Lluvia and if you are a fan of atmospheric black metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Vientos de Olivdo" "Eternidad Solemne" and 'Divinidad". 8 out of 10.
