Journey Into Darkness are a solo project from Florida that has been featured before in this zine and plays a symphonic mixture of black, doom and death metal and this is a review of his 2021 album "Infinite Universe, Infinite Death" which will be released in September by Spirit Coffin Publishing.
A very fast and aggressive sound starts off the album along with a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats. Symphonic elements are also mixes in with the heavier sections of the songs while the vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams as well as some death metal growls also being utilized at times.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them. Melodies are also added into some of the guitar riffing along with the solos and leads also being done in a very melodic style, the slower sections of the songs also show an influence of doom metal and there are also a couple of ambient orientated instrumentals.
On this recording Journey Into Darkness remains true to the symphonic mixture of black, doom and death metal that he had established on his previous release. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover scientific and space themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Journey Into Darkness and if you are a fan of symphonic black, doom and death metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Leave This Place" "Cosmic Knot" and "Entanglement". 8 out of 10.
