Luna Ad Noctum/Hypnotic Inferno/Massacre Records/2013 CD Review


  Luna  Ad  Noctum  are  a  band  from  Poland  that  plays  a  very  symphonic  form  of  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2013  album  "Hypnotic  Inferno"  which  was  released  by  Massacre  Records.

  Drums  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  drumming  with  a  good  amount  of  blast  beats  being thrown  into  the  music  at  times,  while  the  synths  bring  a  very  dark, atmospheric  and  symphonic  sound  to t he recording,  as  for  the  bass  playing  it  has  a  very  strong  and  powerful  sound  with  heavy  riffing  that  dominates  throughout  the  recording.
\
  Rhythm  guitars  range  from  slow,  mid  paced  to  fast  symphonic  black  metal  riffs  that  utilize  some  thrash  and  death  metal  influences  as  well  as  some  melody  in  the  riffing,  while t he  lead  guitars  are  very  melodic  sounding  black  metal  guitar  solos  and  leads.

  Vocals  are  mostly  grim  sounding  black  metal  screams  with  some  deep  growls  and  spoken  word  parts  being  utilized  at  times  as  well  as  some  chanting  being  used  on  one  song,  while  the  lyrics  cover  dark,  occult  and  philosophical  themes,  as  for  the  production  it  has  a  very  strong,  powerful,  heavy  and  professional  sound  where  you  can  hear  all  of  the  musical  instruments  that  are  present  on  this  recording.

  In  my  opinion  Luna  Ad  Noctum  are  a  very  great  sounding  symphonic  black  metal  band  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of t his  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Fear  Technique"  "Fleshless"  "Ether  Dome"  and  "Total  Sleep  Disorder".  RECOMMENDED  BUY.
