Liminal Shroud are a band from Victoria B.C, Canada that plays a very atmospheric and depressive form of black metal and this is a review of their 2020 album "Through the False narrows" which will be released in November by Hypnotic Dirge Records.
Angry screams start off the album along with some heavy yet melodic riffing a few seconds later while all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them. When the music speeds up a decent amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard which also gives the songs more of a raw feeling.
Vocals are mostly high pitched yet depressive black metal screams while most of the tracks are also very long and epic in length. Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the guitar solos and leads also being done in a very melodic style.
Whispered vocals are also added into some parts of the recording along with the music also having its atmospheric moments as well as some tracks also bringing in a small amount of clean playing .and a later song also introduces piano's and nature sounds onto the album. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover futility, passage, individual and metaphysical transformation themes.
In my opinion Liminal Shroud are a very great sounding atmospheric and depressive black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "A Hollow Visage" "The Grotto" and "Lucidity". 8out of 10.
