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.
