Lifelost are a solo project from Spain that plays a speellbinding form of black metal and this is a review of his 2018 album "Dialogues From Beyond" which will be released in October by Transcending Obscurity Records.
A very fast and raw sound starts off the album along with a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats while the riffs also utilizing a decent amount of dark and dissonant sounding melodies as well as the vocals being deep yet grim black metal screams and the music also gets very atmospheric at times.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the solos and leads are done in a very dark and melodic style along with some spoken word parts also being used briefly, one track also adds in a small amount of dark soundcapes and field recordings before returning back to a heavier direction and clean vocals can also b e heard briefly in the background.
Lifelost plays a style of black metal that is very modern, spellbinding, raw and atmospheric sounding, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover darkness and death themes.
In my opinion Lifelost are a very great sounding spellbinding black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Sepulchral Vault" and "Incorporeal Gate". 8 out of 10.
