This is the final review of a recording from New York's Forgotten Soul for the time being which continues the raw and depressive style of black metal from previous recordings and was released by Sepulchral Silence Records in 2016 and is called "That Pale Sun, That Pale End".
A very fast, heavy and raw black metal sound starts off the demo along with a great amount of tremolo picking and high pitched depressive black metal screams and when the music slows down a decent amount of dark sounding melodies can be heard while all of the songs avoid any use of drum playing.
Throughout the recording there is a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the music takes a lot of influences from the second wave style of the genre and mixes it in with some depressive and American black metal influences and all of the songs remain very true to a very raw and heavy sound.
Forgotten Soul creates another recording that remains true to the raw and depressive black metal sound of previous recordings while also taking their music into a heavier direction this time around, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover suicide, depression, Satanism and hatred themes.
In my opinion this is another very great sounding recording from Forgotten Soul and if you are a fan of raw and depressive black metal, you should check out this demo. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Leaving This Body, Leaving this Realm" and "No Blade Shall Kill My Antichrist". 8 out of 10.
