Horizon On The Mute are a solo project from Finland that plays a mixture of doom and death metal with a touch of drone, industrial and electronic music and this is a review of his self titled and self released 2016 mini album.
A very dark and atmospheric drone sound starts off the ep along with some synths a few seconds later which also leads up to more of a heavier doom metal direction and after a couple of minutes deep death metal growls that are also very easy to understand make their presence known on the recording.
All 3 of the tracks are very long and epic in length and the music also alternates between the atmospheric and heavy parts as well as mixing them together at times and industrial elements are also used quite a bit throughout the recording and clean playing can also be heard in some parts of the songs.
Black metal screams can be heard in certain sections of the recording and when violins are utilized they give the music more of an experimental and avant garde feeling and there are also a great amount of electronic elements present throughout the recording and the songs also stick to a very slow and dark musical direction.
Horizon Of The Mute plays a style of doom/death metal that is very slow, dark and heavy while also being very experimental at times with a touch of industrial, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover exploring the unknown.
In my opinion Horizon Of The Mute are a very great sounding doom/death metal solo project with a touch of industrial and drone and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this mini album. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Chime". 8 out of 10.
