This is a review of another recording from Argentina's A Magnificent Cold where he teams up with Phantasos and creates a very melancholic form of dark ambient with elements of depressive black metal and this is a review of his 2018 ep "Scars As Souvenirs" which was released on cassette by Depressive Illusions.
Ambient style synths start off the ep along with some whispers also being used briefly while the clean vocals bring in elements of goth and darkwave as well as all of the drum beats being programmed and the music also brings in a great amount of tragic sounding pianos.
Depressive black metal screams can also be heard in certain sections of the recording while the synths also bring in a variety of many different sounding keys along with one of the tracks being an instrumental and at times the vocals also give the music more of an avant garde edge.
On this recording A Magnificent Cold takes a very melancholic form of ambient and mixes it with tragic sounding pianos, avant garde, goth, darkwave and depressive black metal elements to create something original, the production sounds very dark while the lyrics cover dark and depressive themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from A Magnificent Cold and if you are a fan of ambient, darkwave, goth and depressive black metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Cicatrices" and "Utan Mening". 8 out of 10.
