Wreckmeister Harmonies are a band from the United States that plays a mixture of drone and funeral doom with a touch of black metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Night Of Your Ascension" which was released by Thrill Jockey.
A very atmospheric sound along with some female vocals start off the album and the music also brings in a great amount of drones which are done mostly on synths and after a few minutes classical guitars along with violins can be heard in the background and the vocals also start going into more of an operatic direction.
Both of the tracks are very long and epic in length and after awhile the music starts getting more experimental and avant garde along with the second track taking those influences to another level and when guitars are added onto the recording they take the music into a heavier funeral doom metal direction and clean playing can also be heard in the music at times and male vocals ban also be hard briefly as well as a small amount of growls and screams that also give the music a touch of black metal and the whole album also sticks to a very slow musical direction.
Wreckmeister Harmonies plays a musical style that takes ethereal, drone, funeral doom and black metal and mixes them together to create something very dark, heavy and original, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and depressive themes.
In my opinion Wreckmeister Harmonies are a very great sounding mixture of drone and funeral doom with a touch of black metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Night of your Ascension".
