Whispering Shadows is a solo project from the United Kingdom that has had music reviewed before in this zine and on this recording plays a mixture of depressive black and funeral doom metal and this is a review of his self released 2016 album "Unveil The Dreamcatcher".
Field recordings start off the album before going into a more heavier and atmospheric funeral doom metal direction while also adding in some death metal growls at times. When guitar leads are utilized they are done in a very dark and melodic style and all of the tracks are also very long and epic in length.
Grim whispers can also be heard in some parts of the recording while keyboards are also utilized quite a bit throughout the recording. Elements of depressive black metal are also a very huge part of the songs as well as couple of tracks also introducing spoken word parts and clean vocals onto the recording.
All of the drum beats are also programmed along with the music also adding in some touches of dark ambient and post rock into some parts of the recording, as the album progresses a brief use of clean playing can also be heard as well as one of the tracks being an instrumental and all of the music also sticks to a slower direction. The production sounds very dark while the lyrics cover dreams and dementia themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Whispering Shadows and if you are a fan of atmospheric, depressive black and funeral doom metal, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Unveil The Dreamcatcher(Part One)" "Inconsistent Lucidity" and "Unveil The Dreamcatcher(Part Four)". 8 out of 10.
