Kreatonist is a solo project form Belgium that plays a mixture of atmospheric black, doom, post metal, avant garde and ambient and this is a review of his 2021 album "Dans L' Interminable" which will be released in November by I, Voidhanger Records.
Ambient style synths and soundscapes start off the album before going into more of a post rock direction while all of the musical instruments also have a very powerful sound to them. Elements of doom metal can also be heard in the slower and heavier sections of the songs and the music also has its atmospheric moments.
Psychedelic touches can also be heard at times while the vocals are mostly grim sounding black metal screams. The music also has its avant garde moments along with the solos and leads also being done in a very melodic style and when the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can also be heard.
One track also adds in a brief use of spoken word parts along with the music also having its atmospheric moments as well as some tracks also adding in a small amount of clean playing, some of the songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics are based upon the poetry of Paul Verlaine a poet from the 19th century Paris, France's Fin de Siecel period.
In my opinion Kreationist are a very great sounding mixture of atmospheric black, doom, post metal, avant garde and ambient and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Mandoline" "Walcourt" "La Bonne Chanson XI" and "Dans L' Interminable". 8 out of 10.
