Shores Of Null are a band from the United Kingdom that plays a mixture of melodic black, doom and gothic metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Quiescene" which was released by Candlelight Records.
The album starts out with a very dark and heavy doom metal sound along with some melodies and after the intro the music starts adding in more melodic black metal elements along with solos and leads which also lead up to death metal growls becoming a part of the music as well as being mixed in with melodic clean singing vocals.
When the album moves on the music starts getting more progressive along with the vocals bringing in more black metal elements while the guitars are heavily influenced by doom and more modern forms of metal and on a couple of the songs they speed up for a few seconds and the music starts having an atmospheric black metal feeling to it along with a small amount of blast beats while for the most part the music sticks to a more slow but still heavy direction.
Shores of null create a very heavy, dark, melancholic and melodic album with the way they mix black, doom and gothic metal together while also having the structures of progressive metal and this is a very diverse record and there is a great amount of talent and emotion behind the music.
Song lyrics cover dark and depressive themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording as well as some of the songs being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion Shores Of null are a very great sounding mixture of melodic black, gothic and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Kings Of Null" "Ruins Alive" "Time Is A Wasteland" and "Eudaemonia". 8 out of 10.
