@Gin I'd heard about this release a while ago, but haven't given it an honest listen. I'm not a big 'post-black metal' fan, but I enjoyed the composition of the song and musicianship. At last, saxophone metal! I didn't know what to expect after hearing about the use of sax, but it was an interesting compliment to the track, and didn't run it off the rails. I feel like there's a blend of traditional black metal and shoegaze in there. which feels profound at first, but also ends up leaving me a bit disappointed and wanting something heavier. The sound is a little bright/modern for my tastes, but the construction of the song makes up for it.
I'll throw it a 7/10.
Brand new WITTR track from an upcoming album. Song is 9 minutes 36 seconds and touches on many different styles of black metal across its span, with some acoustic and etheral-sounding elements.
Lovely review. <3
