Weight Of Emptiness are a band from Chile that plays an avant garde and progressive mixture of black, doom and death metal and this is a review of their 2019 album "Conquering the Deep Cycle" which was released by Australis Records.
Synths and symphonic elements start off the album and also mix in with the heavier sections of the songs. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic style while operatic sounding female vocals are also added into some parts of the recording and death metal growls are also a very huge part of the album.
At times the music also gets very progressive sounding while clean playing and acoustic guitars can also be heard on some of the tracks. When clean male vocals are utilized they also give the songs more of an avant garde feeling and the slower sections of the songs also show an influence of doom metal.
Black metal screams are also added into certain sections of the album along with all of the musical instruments also having a very powerful sound to them. Melodies are also added into some of the guitar riffing as well as some blast beats are being utilized when the music speeds up, at times the music also gets very experimental sounding and as the album progresses spoken word parts can also be heard briefly on a few songs and they also bring in a cover Of Twilight Mist's "Two Tears Alone" . The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover introspection, emotions. death and despair themes.
In my opinion Weight Of Emptiness are a very great sounding progressive and avant garde mixture of black, doom and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Invisible Mind Workers" "Lapse Of Insanity" "Eleven Ravens" and "Lurking Hope". 8 out of 10.
