No Light Behind

Rated 2.78/5 (55.56%) (9 Votes)

The Netherlands' Abysmal Darkening play blackened Doom Metal with vocals that sit somewhere between Celtic Frost and Runemagick. The guitars on their debut full-length, No Light Behind, are fuzzy and loaded with reverb as they play slow, heavy riffs. The drums are relegated to the background, further highlighting the Black Metal leanings of Abysmal Darkening. The songwriting is fairly uninspired, with each song sounding much like the others. No Light Behind works pretty well at providing atmosphere, so if you're looking for a soundtrack to a rotten day, you could do worse. Otherwise, these guys sound like the thousands of other bands playing this style, though they play it as well as any.
