This is a review of another recording from Australia's Destined To Suffer which shows his early style of atmospheric and depressive post black metal and the album was originally released in 2019 and called "Glass Souls" with the re-issue being released in March by Nailed Nazarene Industries.
Nature sounds start off the album along with some atmospheric sounding synths and clean playing a few seconds later which also appears on later songs. Most of the tracks are also very long and epic in length Vocals are mostly grim yet depressive black metal screams while the solos and leads are also done in a very melodic post metal style.
The riffs also add in a good amount of melody while the riffs focus more on a heavier power chord style. Whispered vocals and spoken word parts are also added into some parts of the recording along with all of the musical instruments on the recording also having a very powerful sound to them, stringed instruments are also utilized on some tracks and all of the music also sticks to a slower direction.
On this recording Destined To Suffer played a style of depressive post black metal that was very slow and atmospheric sounding. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover dark, depressive and suicidal themes.
In my opinion this was another great sounding recording from Destined To Suffer and if you are a fan of atmospheric and depressive post black metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Darkness Inside" and "Meaningless Life". 8 out of 10.
