Nyctophilia are a solo project from Poland that plays a very atmospheric and depressive form of black metal and this is a review of his self released 2017 album "Dwelling In The Fullmoon Light".
Atmospheric sounding synths start off the album and after the intro the music goes into a heavier direction while also introducing grim yet depressive black metal screams onto the recording and when the music speeds up a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats can be heard which gives the songs a raw feeling.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while synths are also mixed in with the heavier sections of the songs along with the guitar leads being done in a very raw yet melodic fashion and a great portion of the tracks a re very long and epic in length and clean playing can also be heard in certain sections of the recording and the riffs also bring in a decent amount of dark sounding melodies. and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
Nyctophilia plays a style of black metal that is very raw, atmospheric and depressive sounding, the production sounds very dark, raw and heavy while the lyrics cover death, darkness, coldness and Satanism themes.
In my opinion Nyctophilia are a very great sounding raw, atmospheric and depressive black metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "As Nothing Remains Here" and "Alone Abandoned In Darkness". 8 out of 10.
