This is a review of the second compilation from Sweden's solo project Lustre which is also in the atmospheric direction of ambient black metal and the album will be released in March by Morrowless Music and is called "Another Time, Another Place(Chapter Two" which consists of the 2008 ep "Serenity" and the 2013 ep "A Spark of Times Old".
A very heavy and atmospheric sound starts off the compilation along with some ambient style synths. All of the tracks are very long and epic in length while the vocals are mostly depressive black metal screams which are mostly utilized in the background as well as the riffing also getting very repetitive at times.
All of the songs stick to a very slow musical direction while the second track on the first ep is an ambient instrumental. Nature orientated field recordings start off the song on the second ep which is an almost 20 minute track before adding in some ambient style synths which also mixes in with the heavier sections of the music as well as keeping the same style and atmosphere of the previous recording.
On this compilation Lustre takes ambient and atmospheric black metal and mixes them together to create a sound of his own, the production sounds very dark while the lyrics cover nature, darkness, mysticism and spirituality themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding collection from Lustre and if you are a fan of those solo project, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACK "A Spark of Times Old". 8 out of 10.
