Afraid Of Destiny are a band from Italy that has had music reviewed before in this zine and plays a very atmospheric and depressive form of black metal and this is a review of their album "S.I.G.H.S" which will be released in 2019 by Talheim Records.
A synths orientated intro starts off the album along with a brief use of spoken word samples before going into more of a heavier direction which also introduces depressive black metal screams onto the recording while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
A decent amount of melody can also be heard in the music while the vocals also add in some growls at times along with the solos and leads being done in a very melodic style along with some of the tracks being very long and epic in length as well as some synths and spoken word parts also making a return on some of the later songs, as the album progresses an instrumental is added onto the recording and when the music finally speeds up a small amount of blast beats can also be heard and one song also introduces acoustic guitars onto the album.
Afraid Of Destiny creates another recording that remains true to their atmospheric and depressive style of black metal as well as showing t heir growths of musicians, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover misery, melancholy and discomfort themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Afraid Of Destiny and if you are a fan of atmospheric and depressive black metal, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Take me Home, Death" "Shells" and "Killed By Life". 8 out of 10.
