Trist/Zrcadleni Melancholie/Fallen Empire Records/Eisenwald/2013 Vinyl Re-Issue Review


  This  is  a  review  of  another  recording  from  Trist  which  continues  their  atmospheric  hybrid  of  depressive  black  metal  and  doom  with  the  album  originally  being  released  in  2007  and  re-issued  in 2013  as  a  joint  effort  between  Fallen  Empire  Records  and  Eisenwald  with  the  recording  being  called  "Zrcadleni  Melancholie".

  Drums  range  from  slow  to  mid  paced  playing  with  no  fast  drumming  or  blast  beats  being  present  on  this  recording,  while  the  synths  bring  a  very  dark  and  atmospheric  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  to  mid  paced  riffs  that  combine  atmospheric  and  depressive  black    metal  with  melodic  doom  metal  to  create  a  sound  of  their  own  and  there  are  no  guitar  solos  or  leads  present  on  this  recording.

  Vocals a re  all  high  pitched  depressive  black  metal  screams, while  the  lyrics  are  written  in  their  native  tongue  and  cover  melancholy,  pain  and  abstract  themes,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  dark,  raw  and  primitive  sound  with  the  two  songs  being  long  and  epic  in  length.

  In  my  opinion  this  is  another  great  sounding  recording  from  Trist  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  atmospheric  and  depressive  black  metal,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACK  "Posledni  Cesta".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
