This is a review of another recording from Lugberz Sleed which continues their atmospheric, depressive, raw and primitive black metal approach with the album being released in 2008 by Rigorism Productions and called "Epoch Of Former Times".
Drums range from slow to mid paced drumming with no fast playing or blast beats being present on this recording, while the synths when they are utilized are very dark and atmospheric sounding, as for the bass playing it has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars.
Rhythm guitars range from slow to mid paced depressive black metal riffs that are very dark, raw and primitive sounding with some melody being thrown into the riffing at times and there are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording, as for the acoustic guitars when they are utilized use finger picking to enhance the dark atmosphere of the music.
Vocals are all grim sounding black metal screams, while the lyrics cover darkness, depression and anti life themes, as for the production it has a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it with the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Lugberz Sleed and if you are a fan of atmospheric, depressive black metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Rivers Of Time" and "Loss Of The Past". RECOMMENDED BUY.
