This is a review of a split album between France's Leben Onhe Licht Kollektiv and Immemorial called "Collective Of Abstract Psychics" which was released as a joint effort between Cold Dark Matter Records, Frozen Wing Records and Le Crepuscule De Soir and we will start of the review with Leben Onhe Kollektiv which plays a mixture of ritualistic dark ambient, and drone/doom metal.
Drums are mostly slow playing with some ocassional fast parts, while the synths and sound effects bring a very ritualistic dark ambient/drone sound to the music and there is no use of a bass guitar present on this recording.
Guitars are all slow drone/doom metal riffing that is utilized very rarely on this recording, while the vocals are mostly spoken word ritualistic parts with some clean singing chanting, as for the song themes they cover dark and occult themes with the production having a very dark, raw and primitive sound to it.
In my opinion Leben Onhe Licht Kollektiv are a vary great sounding hybrid of dark ritualistic ambient and drone/doom metal and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Dust Is Eternal" and "Horizon". RECOMMENDED.
Next up is Immemorial a band that plays dark ritualistic ambient drone/doom metal.
Sound effects are all dark sounding ritualistic ambient drones with some synths being utilized at times, while the guitars and bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound to it which utilizes alot of distorted parts with the music being all instrumental and covering dark occult themes, in addition the production has a very dark, r aw and primitive sound to it in ddition the one song that is present is very long and epic in length.
In my opinion Immemorial are a very great sounding dark ritualistic ambient/drone/doom metal hybrid and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED.
In conclusion this is a very great sounding split and I would recommend it to all fans of dark ritualistic, ambient, drone and and doom metal. RECOMMENDED BUY.
