The third album of a Brazilian band demonstrates the further progress of the musicians. Six epic tracks featured on the album are filled with deep tragic passion created by solid guitar sound and rich keyboards. Dense sound and interesting melodies distinguish the album among their other works. Piano interludes, mid-tempo fragments and clean vocals make the new album of HellLight an outstanding example of funeral doom death metal.
Lords of Metal:
I wasn’t familiar with Brazil’s Helllight yet and meanwhile this is their third album. I assume the two albums prior to this one never were available easily in these parts. Based on what I hear on this disc, their first for Russian label Solitude Productions, I am curious about their previous efforts of Helllight. The six songs are all in between twelve and fiteen minutes and all sound really great. I would describe this as doom/death bordering to funeral doom. The melodies are great, the vocals, both grunted and clean, fir well to the music and the use of keyboards top it all off. I can’t find any negative aspects about this album. Perhaps some listeners might get a bit bored due to the slow pace that is basically the same pace on the entire album, but I guess this won’t be a problem at all in general to fans of doom metal.
