Astral Luminous/Hypnotic Dirge/Records/2007 Demo Review


  Astral  Luminous  where  a  1  man  band  from  Texas  that  played  a  very  ambient  form  of  post  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2007  demo which  was  released  by  Hypnotic  Dirge  Records.

\  Drums  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  drumming  with  some  blast  beats  being  utilized  at  times,  while  the  synths  bring  a  very  atmospheric  and  dark  ambient  sound  to  the  recording,  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,  mid  paced  to  fast  ambient  black  metal  riffs  that  are  very  dark,  raw  and  primitive  sounding  with  a  good  amount  of  melody  being  thrown  into  the  riffing  as  well  as  some  soft  and  clean  playing,  while  the  lead  guitars  are  very  melodic  sounding  post  black  metal  guitar  solos  and  leads.

  Vocals  are  all  distorted  sounding  grim  black  metal  screams,  while  the  lyrics  cover  Occultism  and  Astral  Projection,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  dark,  raw  and  primitive  sound  with  the  songs  being  long  and  epic  in  length.

  In  my  opinion  Astral  Luminous  where  a  very  great  sounding  atmospheric  and  ambient  post  black  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  recording.  RECOMMENDED  TRACK  "Transcendence".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
