Leda Spiridon are a band from France that plays an ambient form of black metal and this is a review of t heir 2018 album "An Erratic Crusade" which was released by War Productions.
Dark ambient soundscapes start off the album before going into a heavier direction and when the music speeds up a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard which also gives the song s a more raw feeling while the vocals are all high pitched black metal screams.
A decent amount of melody can also be heard in the guitar riffing while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along with the riffs also using a decent amount of melody and the solos and leads also stick to a more raw and melodic style as well as all of the tracks being very long and epic in length.
The tracks also mix the dark ambient synths and soundscapes into the heavier sections of the music while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the drum betas being programmed and spoken word parts can also be heard briefly along with some acoustic guitars being added onto the closing track briefly
Leda Spiridon plays a musical style that takes dark ambient and mixes it in with a raw and epic form of black metal to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Leda Spiridon are a very great sounding ambient black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "An Erratic Crusade". 8 out of 10.
