Dead Man's Hill are a solo project from Belgium that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of dark ambient and industrial with some elements of experimental and black metal and this is a review of his self released 2016 album "Crossroads".
Dark ambient soundscapes along with some synths start off the album and after awhile the music gets more atmospheric and experimental while also bringing in a variety of many different sounding keys and female vocals can also be heard in the music at times and they also give the music more of an operatic feeling.
All of the tracks are very long and epic in length while also getting very psychedelic and ethnic sounding at times while the songs also bring in elements of neo classical and there is also a decent amount of male vocals being utilized throughout the recording while some songs also bring in a shamanistic atmosphere as well as mixing in touches of black metal and there is also a brief use of spoken word samples and as the album progresses the music starts incorporating more industrial influences while also getting more ritualistic.
Dead Man's hill creates a recording t hat goes for more of a nature orientated approach to dark ambient while still adding in some ritualistic, experimental, industrial and black metal elements, t he production sounds dark yet powerful while the song themes revolve around nature.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Dead Man's Hill and if you are a fan of dark ambient and industrial, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Crossroads" and "The Call Of the Moth". 8 out of 10.
