Lugburz Sleed/Epoch Of Former Times/Rigorism Productions/2008 CD Review


  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.
