The Suns Journey Through The Night are a solo project that plays a mixture of raw black metal and dark ambient and this is a review of his 2020 album "Eternal Black Transmissions" which will be released on May 29th by Repose Records.
Dark soundscapes start off the album along with some ambient style synths which also mixes in with the heavier sections of the music at times. Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams while the faster sections of the songs also add in a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats which also gives the recording more of a raw feeling.
At times the music also captures a very lo-fi atmosphere while dark sounding melodies can also be heard in some of the guitar riffing. Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the songs also mixing in a great mixture of both old school and modern influences.
As the album progresses a couple of ambient instrumentals can also be heard along with a couple of tracks also being very long and epic in length and towards the end a brief use of melodic guitar leads can also be heard. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover Darkness and Space themes.
In my opinion The Suns Journey Through The Night are a very great sounding mixture of raw black metal and dark ambient and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Lightning Scars Across A Dead Planet" and "Eternal Black Transmissions". 8 out of 10.
