This is modern dark metal which combines ingredients from various sub-genres, including black metal, doom metal and dark rock, to a soulful melange. In strongest moments the songs even reach an intensity level which I only know from nordic bands like Ghost Brigade. Listen for example to "Unborn / Undying / Unknown", "Dissociation" or "The Awakening". Strong debut!
Favorite track: Unborn / Undying / Unknown.
Following the wait of almost a decade, the German debutant LAST MOON'S DAWN are now ready to present the highly anticipated "Absence" as a full-length album to the world of dark metal. Produced by Markus Siegenhort (Lantlôs/LowCityRain), the nine fascinating tracks co-produce a magical soundscape for any fans that adore the finest dark metal with influences of depressive rock. "Absence" demonstrates a sensational achievement of the band, and will be considered as a rare collection of captivating tunes which interwines with your dreams until eternity.
This album is perfect for what I call "black noise". You can listen and leave it in the back of your consciousness whilst you focus on another pressing matter before you. The music is "smooth" in that sense, but very agitative and aggressive in another. It is good black metal. And it is a great buy! Sapphyx
