Starless Night/The Depression Lingers/Broken Limb Recordings/2009 EP Review


  Starless  Night  are  a  band  from  Florida  that  plays  a  very  raw  and  primitive  form  of  depressive  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2009  ep  "The  Depression  Lingers"  which  was  released  by  Broken  Limb  Recordings.

  Drums  range  from  slow  to  mid  paced  playing  with  no  fast  drumming or  blast  beats  being  present  on  this  recording,  while  the  bass  playing  has  a  very  dark tone  with  riffs  that  follow  the  riffing  that  are  coming  out  of  the  guitars,  as  for  the  synths  which  are  only  used  briefly  they  bring  a  very  dark,  atmospheric  and  ambient  sound  to  the  recording.

  Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow  to  mid  paced  depressive  black  metal  riffs  that  are  very  dark,  heavy,  raw  and  primitive  sounding  with  the  riffing  being  more  focused  on  tremolo  picking  and  power  chords  as  well  as  a  brief  use  of  clean  playing  and  some  melodic  elements  and  there  are  no  guitar  solos  or  leads  present  on  this  recording.

  Vocals  are  mostly  grim  sounding  depressive  black  metal  screams  with  some  deeper  vocals  being  utilized  at  times,  while  the  lyrics  cover  lucid  dreaming,  dark  and  depressive  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  Starless  Night  are  a  very  great  sounding  dark,  depressive,  raw  and  primitive  black  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  e.p.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "The  Depression  Lingers"  and  "Lucid  Dreaming".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
