Some Happy Thoughts are a duo from Montreal, Quebec, Canada that plays a very raw and depressive form of black metal and this is a review of his self released 2016 demo "Epitaphe".
Natural sounding noises start off the demo and after a few seconds clean playing and mournful cries are added onto the recording and after a couple of minutes drum beats are added into the music and on the second track t he music goes into a very fast and raw black metal direction t hat also utilizes a great amount of blast beats.
Vocals are mostly grim yet high pitched depressive black metal screams while the riffs use a great amount of tremolo picking and throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and melodies can also be hear d in the music at times while clean playing also makes a return in certain sections of the recording along with a small amount of spoken word parts and the last 2 tracks are very long and epic in length and there is also a brief use of melodic guitar leads and acoustic guitars are also added on the last song.
Some Happy Thoughts plays a style of black metal that is very raw and depressive while also having its melodic moments, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics are written in French and cover dark and depressive themes.
In my opinion Some Happy Thoughts are a very great sounding raw and depressive black metal duo and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this demo. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Espoir" and "Enfin". 8 out of 10.
