Solace Of The Void are a band from Canada that plays a very atmospheric and symphonic mixture of black, doom and folk metal and this is a review of their self titled 2019 album which will be released on July 26th by CDN Records.
Acoustic guitar playing starts off the album while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them before going into a heavier direction. Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams along with the solos and leads being done in a very melodic style and when the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the symphonic parts also being mixed in the heavier sections of the music. All of the tracks are very long and epic in length while elements of folk can also be heard in some parts of the songs.
Elements of doom metal can also be heard in the slower sections of the music as well as some tracks also bringing clean vocals onto the recording, one track also adds in a brief use of spoken word parts and whispered vocals and cellos can also be heard in certain sections of the album and as the album progresses the vocals also start utilizing more death metal growls. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover solitude and uncertainty themes.
In my opinion Solace Of The Void are a very great sounding symphonic mixture of black, doom, and folk metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Before The Throne Of Beauty And Bone" and "The Circle". 8 out of 10.
