Magnum Itiner Interius are a 1 man band from Chicago, Illinois that plays an instrumental form of ambient/doom metal and this is a review of their 2012 "Departure At The Betrayal Of Life" which was released by Vic Records.
Drums range from slow to mid paced drumming with not much in the way of fast playing or blast beats, while the synths bring a very dark ambient sound to the music, as for the bass playing it has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars and at times they have a very powerful sound to them.
Rhythm guitars range from slow to mid paced riffs that combine melodic doom metal with some death metal elements as well as a brief use of clean playing, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding doom metal guitar solos and leads, as for the classical guitars when they are utilized they use finger picking and full chords to enhance the darkness that is coming out of the music.
Vocals and songwriting are all absent from this recording with the music being all instrumental except for a brief use of spoken word parts, while the song themes cover darkness and depression, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound to it.
In my opinion Magnum Itiner Interius are a very great sounding instrumental ambient/doom metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "A Mirage Of Your Journey" "The Shattered Dream" "From Nothingness Comes Eternity" and "Departure At The Betrayal Of Your Life". RECOMMENDED BUY.
