II Vuoto are a solo project that has been featured before in this zine and plays an atmospheric form of funeral doom metal and this is a review of their 2015 "Weakness".
Nature sounds start off the album along with some keyboards a few seconds later and they use a variety of many different keys and after a couple of minutes heavy riffs, melodic leads and death metal growls are added into the music and the songs also bring in a great mixture of both clean and heavy parts.
A good portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length and there are also a small amount of spoken word parts and clean singing and the songs also stick to a very slow style of funeral doom and acoustic guitars can be heard at times and the music also brings in elements of black metal at times and they also bring in a brief instrumental along with a small amount of violons and some songs bring in some symphonic parts.
Ill Vuoto continues the atmospheric style of funeral doom metal while also being more melodic and symphonic this time around around, the production sounds very powerful for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark and depressive themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding from Ill Vuoto and if you are a fan of atmospheric funeral doom metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "And Night Devours Me" "Sea Of Emptiness" and "I, Essence Of Nothingness". 8 out of 10.
