The Last Hour are a project from Italy that h as been featured before in this zine and on this recording plays post cold-darkwave and this is a review of his 2014 album "Deadline" which was released as a joint effort by The White Room Netlabel and Secenth Crow Records.
Electronic music beats and a dark ambient sound start off the album along with some clean singing gothic vocals being added onto the recording a few seconds later which leads up to more of a darkwave direction and the synths have a very dominating presence on all of the tracks and at times the music has an 80's feeling to it.
As the album progresses the music gets more experimental and also brings in elements of alternative music to the old darkwave sound that is present on the recording and there are a great amount of programmed drum beats throughout all of the tracks along with one song being an instrumental and at times you can hear elements of industrial in the songs along with some bass and acoustic guitars being added into the music briefly later on during the album.
The Last Hour creates a very tragic and melodic style of post cold-darkwave on this recording and the music has a very dark and tragic sound to it, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover the infinite, the unconceivable worlds, the cosmic space and the nowhere.
In my opinion this is another great sounding from The Last Hour and if you are a fan of coldwave or darkwave, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Everything Fades Away" "Deadline" "Utopia" and "Alpha & Omega". 8 out of 10.
