Darkflight are a duo from Bulgaria that plays a mixture of depressive black metal and atmospheric doom metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "The hereafter" which was released as a joint effort between Symbol Of Domination Productions, Metallic Media, and Black Plague Records.
Melodic guitar leads along with some drum beats and ambient style keyboards start off the album along with some high pitched black metal screams a few seconds later and after awhile symphonic elements and clean singing are added onto the recording along with all of the musical instruments sounding very powerful.
All of the tracks are very long and epic in length while the music incorporates a lot of depressive and atmospheric black metal elements as well as utilizing a great amount of melodic guitar leads and classical guitars along with stringed instruments are also utilized briefly and the slower riffing is more rooted in doom metal and one track also adds in a small amount of spoken word parts and all of the songs stick to a very slow direction and on the last track elements of shoegaze and post rock are added onto the recording.
Darkflight plays a musical style that mixes the atmospheric styles of black and doom metal together with some symphonic, depressive, ambient and post rock elements to create something very original, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover fantasy and darkness themes.
In my opinion Darkflight are a very great sounding atmospheric and depressive mixture of black and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this duo. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Expiring Soul" and "Threshold Of Death". 8 out of 10.
