Midnight Callings are a band from Germany that plays a very dark form of black metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Pilgrims Of The Black Hole" which was released by Into Dungeons Records.
Night sounds start off the album and after a minute it starts going for more of fast, heavy yet raw black metal sound that also utilizes a great amount of blast beats and after awhile grim black metal screams make their presence known on the recording and the music can also get very atmospheric at times.
Melodies can be heard in some parts of the songs along with a great portion of the tracks being very long and epic in length and dark sound effects can also be heard in certain sections of the recording and as the album progresses the songs start bring in a great mixture of slow, mi paced and fast parts and the music also brings in a very modern style of black metal and they close the album with a cover of Mysticum's "Where The Raven Flies" which also brings in a small amount of synths and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording.
Midnight Callings plays a style of black metal that is very dark, raw and heavy while also bringing in a great amount of epic structures, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover darkness and death themes.
In my opinion Midnight Callings are a very great sounding interstellar black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Pilgrims Of the Black Hole" and "Dust". 8 out of 10.
