Dreamshift are a band from Germany that plays a mixture of atmospheric black metal and post rock and this is a review of their 2017 album "Seconds" which is going to be released in October by STF Records.
Acoustic guitars along with some shoegaze elements start off the album before going into a heavier direction which also introduces high pitched black metal screams onto the recording as well as some melodic guitar leads and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard.
During the faster sections of the songs a great amount of tremolo picking can be heard which also gives the music more of a raw feeling while the songs also alternate between both clean and heavy parts along with the songs also bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and spoken word parts are also added into certain sections of the recording as well as some of the tracks being very long and epic in length, synths are also added onto some of the songs and one of the later tracks is an instrumental.
Dreamshift plays a musical style that takes atmospheric black metal and mixes it with post rock to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very raw and feeling while the lyrics cover life and social abuse themes.
In my opinion Dreamshift are a very great sounding mixture of atmospheric black metal and post rock and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Flowers" "Dark Blue" and "Just Like Ran". 8 out of 10.
