Seeming Emptiness are a band from Germany that plays a mixture of ambient, post, doom and death metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Heavy Rain" which will be released on May 28th by Rain Without End Records.
Clean guitar playing starts off the album along with some melodic riffing and elements of post rock a few seconds later and once the drums and distorted guitars kick in the music starts going into a heavier direction and the solos and leads also use a great amount of melody and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
A lot of doom metal elements can be heard in the heavier guitar riffing and a great portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length and the songs also bring in a great mixture of both clean and heavy parts and all of the songs are instrumental and as the album progresses elements of dark ambient are added into more of the songs and all of the tracks stick to mostly a slow or mid paced musical direction while there is also a brief use of fast playing and blast beats and rain sounds are also utilized briefly on the closing track.
Seeming Emptiness plays an instrumental musical style that takes ambient and a modern style of post metal and mixes it in with the more melodic and depressive style of doom/death metal to create something very original and the production sounds very professional.
In my opinion Seeming Emptiness are a very great sounding instrumental mixture of ambient, post and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Dispatched Fortune" "Heavy Rain" "Heirless" and "Enliven The Dust". 8 out of 10.
