Nonsun are a band from Ukraine that has been featured before in this zine and plays an experimental mixture of drone, sludge and doom metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Black Snow Desert" which was re-issued in 2018 as a joint effort between Dunk! Records and Cimmerian Shade Recordings.
Atmospheric sounding drones start off the album while the music also gets very experimental and avant garde at times along with some clean playing also being added into certain sections of the recording and they also bring in elements of post rock as well as all of the tracks being very long and epic in length.
When the music gets heavy it mixes in a great amount of doom and sludge metal elements along with all of the tracks being instrumentals while all of the music sticks to a slow direction as well as all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and at times the music brings in an improv feeling.
On this recording Nonsun remain true to their experimental mixture of drone, sludge, doom and post metal while taking away the vocals to take their sound to a different level and the production sounds very professional.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Nonsun and if you are a fan of experimental, drone, sludge, doom and post metal, you should check out this re-issue. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Ashes Of Light, Demons Of Justice" and "Rest Of Tragedy". 8 out of 10.
