In Vacuo are a duo from Hungary that plays a mixture of post black and doom metal and this is a review of their 2020 album "Urbain Noir" which was released by NGC Prod.
Dark yet melodic guitar leads and solos start off the album before going into a faster musical direction which also uses a great amount of tremolo picking and blast beats. Vocals are mostly grim black metal screams along with the riffs also adding in a lot of melody and all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them.
Elements of doom metal can also be heard in the slower sections of the songs while a couple of the tracks are also long and epic in length. Death metal growls can also be heard at times along with the music also adding a decent amount of post metal touches as well as the music also adding in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Spoken word parts can also be heard in certain sections of the album and as the recording progresses more experimental elements can also be heard along with a later song also adding in a brief use of semi melodic vocals. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Inner Suffering and Transcendental Thoughts mixed in with some Freudian Psychology.
In my opinion In Vacuo are a very great sounding mixture of post black and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this duo. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Timetraveller" "Obscure Mind" "Empty Room" and "Up And Down". 8 out of 10.
