NONE: Damp Chill of Life

In complete spirit crushing fashion, NONE is set to unleash their third full length release titled Damp Chill of Life. After their self titled debut and last years record Life Has Gone On Long Enough, you can come to expect great depressive atmospheric black metal from these shadow lurkers. Destroying optimism, stealing light and replacing it with bitter shadow, NONE offers up seven brand new tracks that are sure to leave you in a pale depressive state. With their oppressive and bleak atmosphere, NONE buries you once more underneath the permafrost leaving you to be chilled to the bone, bitter and alone.

Through these seven long tracks, NONE moves forth wraith like, ever flowing and shifting from one depressive tone to the next. Each track picks apart your psyche leaving you in a dark and bitter place from which you cannot crawl out of. Each track flows well together as when one ends the next picks up right where the previous track left off shrouding you in pure misery and anguish for the entire run time. With each track being as lengthy as they are, NONE takes their time to unravel and unfold their depressive soundscape trapping you in their ever mesmerizing yet bleak ambiance.

As wicked and solemn as the ambiance and atmosphere is throughout this release is, the musicianship plays just as big of a part. Not very often is it that you hear NONE break in to a complete bone rattling blitzkrieg as the majority of the time you are treated to a more down tempo, melodic and melancholic sound. The instrumentation and the atmospherics throughout this record work greatly hand in hand to present to you an overall incredibly depressive yet hypnotic sound that is hard to shake. Each track within this record is a well sewn together piece of work that enchants and invites you in only for you to freeze to the bone and lie under the frost covered soundscapes lifeless.

Every aspect of this record is so well executed. From the instrumentation, to the icy atmospherics to the dissonant pained vocals to the overall great production, this record is a great one. Damp Chill of Life is a wicked record, one that grips you from beginning to end with the frigid hand of death. Each track is a haunting reverie that invites you to die alone among the shadows and the frost and you don’t have much choice but to abide. Damp Chill of Life is an excellently crafted record, one that grabs your attention and keeps you coming back for more and more. Not enough can be said regarding this record. The only thing left to say is that this will be quite simply one of the best depressive black metal and black metal releases in general this year.

Through eight tracks of soul crushing melancholy, NONE creates an ultimately devastating sound that wraps you up in dismal hymns. Life Has Gone On Long Enough is pure depressive black metal in its most raw and powerful form as it provides you with track after track of bone chilling black metal. From beginning to end you are subject to the cold and ever biting atmospheres that NONE provides only for them to wrap you up in a solemn fog to lay you to rest in the damp earth. Each track is a fluid offering as one weaves straight in to the next never giving you a rest from the overall oppressive and incredibly melancholic sounds that pour through your speakers.

Life Has Gone On Long Enough is a slow burning effort from beginning to end never picking the pace up beyond a slow crawl, forever twisting and torturing your mind with their crawling oppressive sound. Each track is lengthy as well with near all of them topping over seven minutes in length which really gives NONE plenty of time to draw you in to their dismal and heart wrenching sounds. Even though these sinister offerings are lengthy you never really feel as though they over stay their welcome as they pass by fluidly like reveries dancing in the shadows.

This release does a great job of drawing you in and keeping you listening throughout until the final ghastly note pours through your speakers. Life Has Gone On Long Enough is a compelling and gripping release from beginning to end that grips you with the cold and clammy hands of death never to release you until you have completely been submerged in depressive darkness. More than just the somber musicianship here, NONE provides you with wicked atmospherics all throughout that supplement each track and propel each offering further in to the forever growing darkness. With melancholic piano, cackling laughter and cries from the grave, NONE offer up some seriously sinister and submersing atmospheres that just cannot be taken lightly or shaken off.

Life Has Gone On Long Enough grips you tightly, forever pulling you deeper in to the grave from beginning to end. This raw and soul reaping record has everything it needs to create an overall excellent depressive black metal offering. The atmospherics are incredible and the dissonant musicianship plays perfectly in to the hands of the powerful ambiance to create a sound that is wholly menacing and hypnotic all the same. Each of the eight dirges of depression that are harbored within the cracked walls of Life Has Gone On Long Enough are really well constructed through and through gifting you with one hell of an intense and gripping listen.
