Monotone Depression is a solo project from Sweden that plays a mixture of goth rock and black metal and this is a review of his self released 2018 demo "X Life".
Atmospheric synths along with some mid tempo black metal style riffing starts off the demo along with a great amount of goth rock influences as well as all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them along with the vocals being done in more of a clean style.
When guitar leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion while the music also mixes in elements of death and depressive rock and all of the music sticks to either a slow or mid tempo style.
Monotone Depression plays a musical style that takes goth rock and mid tempo black metal and mixes them together to create a sound of his own, the production sounds very dark while the lyrics cover dark and depressive themes.
In my opinion Monotone Depression are a very great sounding mixture of goth rock and black metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Out Of Tune With Life" and "On A Plane With The Devil". 8 out of 10.
