Labyrinth Entrance are a band from Poland that plays a passive form of black metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Monumental Bitterness" which was released by Godz Of War Productions.
Nature orientated soundscapes start off the album along with some clean guitars and atmospheric sounds before going into more of a heavier musical direction which also uses a great amount of dark sounding melodies along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very dark yet melodic fashion while the vocals are mostly high pitched tortured black metal screams which also getting very deep and angry at times, sci fi orientated melodic singing can also be heard briefly as well as most of the tracks being very long and epic in length.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them while some of the slower riffing brings in elements of dark and doom metal along with an instrumental track as well as blast beats and tremolo picking being used during the faster sections of the songs which also gives the music a more raw feeling and throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Labyrinth Entrance plays a style of black metal that is in between the depressive, melodic, modern and atmospheric side of the black metal genre while also mixing in a touch of dark metal, the production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Labyrinth Entrance are a very great sounding passive black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Canto I' and "Canto V". 8 out of 10.
