Skyless Aeons are a band from London, Ontario, Canada that plays a melodic, technical, progressive and dissonant mixture of black, doom and death metal and this is a review of their self released 2020 album "Drain The Sun" which will be released in October.
Clean playing starts off the album before going into a heavier direction while all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them. The riffs also add in a great amount of dissonant structures along with the vocals also adding in a great amount of death metal growls.
Black metal screams are also a very huge part of the recording while the music also gets very progressive sounding at times. Elements of doom metal can also be heard in the slower sections of the songs along with the solos and leads also being done in a very melodic and technical style.
Some of the tracks are very long and epic in length along with some whispered spoken word parts also being utilized briefly as well as some melodies also being added in some of the riffing and the music also has its atmospheric moments, synths can also be heard briefly towards the end. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover space, death and corruption themes.
In my opinion Skyless Aeons are a very great sounding melodic, technical, progressive and dissonant mixture of black, doom and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Ascension Towards Nothing" "Dimensional Entrapment" and "Drain The Sun". 8 out of 10.
