Russia's Lucifer Dungeon have returned with a new recording which continues the old school style of black metal from their previous release and this is a review of their self released 2020 album "Music Of Lost Spirits, Pt. II".
A very dark and distorted sound starts off the album before going into a heavier direction while the riffs also add in a decent amount of melody. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very melodic style along with the vocals being mostly grim yet high pitched black metal screams.
When the music speeds up a decent amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard which also gives the music more of a raw feeling. Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with all of the musical instruments also having a very powerful sound to them as well as one track also introducing clean playing onto the recording, the music is also very heavily rooted in the 90's era.
One this recording Lucifer's Dungeon remains true to the old school style of black metal that they had established on their previous release. The production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover Satanism, Luciferian, Left Hand Path. Anti Dogma, Nihilism and Misanthropy themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Lucifer's Dungeon and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Infinite War" "Lucifer's Dungeon" "Misanthropy" and "The Last Lost Spirit". 8 out of 10.
