Sweden's Mist Of Misery have returned with a new recording which continues the symphonic, atmospheric and depressive style of black metal from previous releases and this is a review of their 2019 double album "Unalterable" which will be released in April by Black Lion Records.
Symphonic sounding keyboards start off the album and also mix in with the heavier sections of the music at times. On the second track clean guitars also start being added into certain sections of the recording along with a great portion of the tracks being very long and epic in length.
Clean vocals can also be heard briefly while depressive black metal screams are also used quite a bit throughout the recording. All of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them while the guitar solos and leads are done in a very melodic style and stringed instruments are also added into some parts of the music.
Blast beats and tremolo picking are also utilized during the faster sections of the songs and also gives the music more of a raw feeling. Spoken word parts are also added on some of the tracks, a couple of the songs are instrumentals and they also bring in Cold World and Dimmu Borgir covers as the album progresses, acoustic guitars are also added onto some of the later tracks. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover depression themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Mist Of Misery and if you are a fan of atmospheric, symphonic and depressive black metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Halls Of Emptiness" "Desolation" "The Dying Light" and "Unalterable". 8 out of 10.
