Melankolia are a solo project from Ohio that plays a mixture of neo-classical, ethereal and dark ambient and this is a review of his 2017 album "Vividarium Intervigilium Viator" which was released by Hypnotic Dirge Records.
Tragic sounding keyboards start off the album along with some elements of neo-classical while the music also mixes in a great amount of dark ambient style atmosphere as well as a great amount of programmed beats and most of the music is instrumental and always sticks to an instrumental direction, nature sounds are also utilized at times as well as most of the tracks being very long and epic in length and also sounding very different from each other and as the album progresses a brief use of spoken word parts can also be heard.
Melankolia plays a musical style that takes neo-classical, ethereal and dark ambient and mixes them together to create a sound of his own as well as keeping most of the music instrumental and the production sounds very dark.
In my opinion Melankolia is a very great sounding mixture of neo-classical, ethereal and dark ambient and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Ambrosia" "Between Heaven And Hell" "Melankolia" and "Annie, Light In A Dying World". 8 out of 10.
