Thy Dying Light are a band from the United Kingdom that plays a very uncompromising and antisocial form of black metal and this is a review of their self titled 2020 album Which will be released in April by Purity Through Fire.
A very fast and raw sound starts off the album along with a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats, Vocals are mostly grim yet high pitched black metal screams while dark sounding melodies can also be heard in some of the guitar riffing and all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them.
Most of the music is heavily rooted in the 90's era along with the songs also adding in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. Clean playing can also be heard on a few songs while the guitar solos and leads are also done in a very dark yet melodic style which also captures a more modern vibe at times.
The music also brings in a great amount of Norwegian influences and as the album progresses a brief use of spoken word parts and whispers can also be heard and the closing track is an instrumental. The production sounds very raw and heavy while the lyrics cover Satanism, Darkness, Death and Evil themes.
In my opinion Thy Dying Light are a very great sounding uncompromising and antisocial black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Under The Horns" "Black Death" "Fist Of Satan" and "Thy Dying Light". 8 out of 10.
