This is a review of another early recording from Netherlands's Deinonychus that shows the music going for more of a suicidal music of black and doom metal and the album was originally released in 1996 and called "The Weeping Of A Thousand of Years" which was re-issued in 2022 by My Kingdom Music as a part of the "Bleak & Vile" box set.
Atmospheric sounding keyboards start off the album and also mixes in with the heavier sections of the songs at times. Spoken word parts are also added into certain sections of the recording along with the slower sections of the songs also bringing in elements of doom metal and the solos and leads are also done in a very melodic style.
All of the tracks are also very long and epic in length while some songs also add in a small amount of clean playing. Vocals are mostly high pitched depressive black metal screams along with some suicidal cries also being utilized at times and when the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard.
When tremolo picking is added into the faster riffing they also give the music more of a raw feeling along with the riffing also utilizing melody at times. Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as the songs also adding in a good amount of dark metal touches. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover darkness, horror, antireligion and depression themes.
In my opinion this was another great sounding recording from Deinonychus and if you are a fan of depressive and suicidal black, dark and doom metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "A Gathering Of Memories" "I Have Done As You Did" and "The Gothic Statue". 8/5 out of 10.
