Atmospheric drones start off the album along with some synths a few seconds later and after awhile heavy yet melodic riffing is added onto the recording along with some clean goth vocals as well as all of the musical instruments also having a very powerful sound to them and growls are also utilized at times.
A great portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length while spoken word parts and whispers are also utilized at times along with some clean playing also being added into certain sections of the recording and when the music speeds up a small amount of blast beats can be heard as well as some black metal influences and as the album progresses touches of post rock can be heard.
Painted Black plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in goth and doom metal while also adding in some death and black metal influences into the heavier sections of the songs, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover life and emotional storm themes.
In my opinion Painted Black are a very great sounding mixture of goth and doom metal with some black and death metal elements and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Raging Light" "Chamber" and "Almagest". 8 out of 10.
