In Shadows And Dust are a solo project from France that plays a melodic mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of his 2018 album "Enlightened by Darkness" which will be released on December 21st by Redefining Darkness Records.
An intro which rain and thunder sounds starts off the album before going into a heavier direction along with some atmospheric sounding synths also being used briefly while the solos and leads are done in a very melodic style along with the riffs also adding in a great amount of melody.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them while the faster sections of the songs also bring in a great amount of melody along with the vocals being mostly black metal screams as well as the music also mixing in a great amount of early 90's Swedish era death metal and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts, some of the faster sections of the songs also add in the raw aggression of grindcore.
In Shadows And Dust plays a musical style that goes back to the 90's era of melodic Swedish black and death metal while also adding in a more aggressive approach to the genre, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover darkness themes.
In my opinion In Shadows And Dust are a very great sounding melodic and old school mixture of black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Enlightened By Darkness" "Deathlike Silence" and "At the Edge Of The World". 8 out of 10.
