Like clockwork, NONE returns this spring to destroy your seasonal optimism with their oppressively bleak atmosphere. Following 2018’s epic “Life Has Gone On Long Enough”, “Damp Chill Of Life” is NONE’s third full-length chapter in their arrestingly reclusive legacy.
Weaving visionary soundscapes with depressive black metal, “Damp Chill Of Life” will gnaw at your bones like dying alone in an ice-bound wilderness. Haunting piano keys and retching voices flicker through harsh walls of instruments, ebbing and flowing through the lengthy tracks as NONE take their time to pick apart your psyche.
“The bleakness, haunting and dreadful, is a euphonious swarm of distortion with glimpses of melancholic guitar and piano that formulate the most morose album I’ve heard this year. Each song blends seamlessly into the next, creating one extended sojourn through the dreadful black void that is all too familiar to some. A completely miserable album that is simple in its thoughts, it presents anguish in its rawest form. Shattered emotions that cling to your soul and relentlessly try to destroy you from within.”
“There are good releases and then there are those albums that crawl under your skin and make you crave for more. NONE has continuously delivered some of the most punishing and bleak Atmospheric/Depressive Black Metal releases since its inception and “Damp Chill of Life” is yet another brilliant addition to their discography. Filled with haunting atmospheric elements and just the right amount of heaviness, this release is one of the best in the genre for 2019, so don’t miss out.”
