A Sea Of Dead Trees are a solo project from Scotland that plays a mixture of post black metal and shoegaze and this is a review of his 2020 album "Boaby Coull" which will be released on May 29th by Trepanation Recordings.
Clean playing starts off the album while also introducing elements of post rock onto the recording. Synths can also be heard at times along with all of the drum beats also being programmed and after awhile the music also goes into a heavier direction as well as the solos and leads being done in a very melodic style.
Spoken word samples are also added on some of the tracks while the music also mixes in a great amount of shoegaze influences. A couple of tracks also adds in some Americana style instruments and acoustic guitars along with the music also having its experimental moments as well as the heavier sections of the songs also mixing in the heaviness of post black metal and as the album progresses depressive black metal screams and clean goth rock style vocals can also be heard briefly and all of the music sticks to a slower direction.
A Sea Of Dead Trees plays a musical style that takes black metal, post rock and shoegaze and mixes them together to create a sound of his own and the production also sounds very professional.
In my opinion A Sea Of Dead Trees are a very great sounding mixture of black metal, post rock and shoegaze and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Willbrook" "Nuclear Peace Time Boys" "Between Two Worlds" and "My Batteries Are Low And It's Getting Dark". 8 out of 10.
