Devil's Looking Glass are a musical project from Tennessee that plays a mixture of southern goth and dark folk music with some touches of black metal and this is a review of their 2021 album "Treacherous Autumnal Wisdom" which was released by Moonlight Cypress Archetypes.
Americana style folk instruments start off the album along with some clean vocals a few seconds later. Black metal screams are also added into certain sections of the album along with some tracks also showing an influence of country music as well as adding in a southern gothic atmosphere at times.
When electric guitars are added onto the recording they also add in some old school metal style solos and leads as well as some melodic riffs which also gives the album more variety. All of the tracks also sound very different from each other along with some of the songs also being instrumentals and the closing song is also very long and epic in length.
Devil's Looking Glass plays a musical style that takes southern gothic, Americana, country and dark folk and mixes them together with some touches of black metal and hard rock to create a sound of their own. The production sounds very dark while the lyrics cover miserable tales of lost and woe with some references to the old gods set in an Appalachian Haze.
In my opinion Devil's Looking Glass are a very great sounding mixture of southern gothic and dark folk with some touches of black metal and if you are a fan of those genres, you should check out this musical project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Her House" "Paint Mountain" "Go Dig My Grave" and "Wodenstag". 8 out of 10.
