Lebenssucht are an international band with members from Bulgaria, Germany and Belgium that plays a very dark and depressive form of black metal and this is a review of their 2016 ep "Fucking My Knife" which was released by Abstruce Eerie Radiance.
Acoustic guitar playing starts off the ep before going into a heavier direction a few seconds later as well as introducing high pitched depressive black metal screams onto the recording and growls can also be heard briefly in the background and when guitar leads are utilized they are done in a very raw and melodic fashion.
When the music speeds up a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard which also gives the music more of a raw black metal feeling and the vocals also get somewhat melodic at times and the riffs also bring in a small amount of melody and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and a couple of the tracks are very long and epic in length and keyboards are also used briefly and the last track brings in elements of harsh noise.
Lebenssucht plays a very depressive black metal that is very raw and dark while also having its melodic moments, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover depressive and suicidal themes.
In my opinion Lebenssucht are a very great sounding depressive black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Beloved Depression". 8 out of 10.
