The Lightbringer are a band from Quebec, Canada that plays a melodic and atmospheric mixture of black, death and gothic metal and this is a review of their self released 2020 album "From The Void To The Existence" which will be released in July.
Tragic sounding pianos and keyboards start off the album while also using a variety of many different sounding keys and mixing in with the heavier sections of the music. Operatic female vocals are also added into some parts of the recording and the songs also mix in a great amount of black metal screams and death metal growls.
The riffs also add in a great amount of melody and when the music speeds up a lot of blast beats and tremolo picking can also be heard. All of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them along with the music also having its atmospheric moments as well as the music also adding in some elements of goth metal.
The songs also add in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as the guitar leads being done in a melodic style when they are utilized and most of the tracks are also very short in length along with one track also adding in a brief use of spoken word parts and they also bring in a cover of Kitaro's "Caravansary". The production sounds very professional while the lyrics are a concept album based upon fantasy themes.
In my opinion The Lightbringer are a very great sounding melodic and atmospheric mixture of black, death and gothic metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "From The Void" "The Awakening" "The Seal Of Annihilation" and "To Existence". 8 out of 10.
