Lustre are a solo project from Sweden that has had a few albums reviewed before in this zine and plays an atmospheric style of ambient black metal and this is a review of the first of two compilation albums "Another Time, Another (Chapter One)" which will be released in March of 2019 by Morrowless Music and consists of the unreleased 2013 ep "The Ardour Of Autumn" and the 2009 ep "Welcome Winter".
Ambient style keyboards start off the compilation and also mixes in with the heavier sections quite a bit throughout all of the tracks. All of the songs are very long and epic in length while the vocals are mostly depressive black metal screams as well as the music also getting very atmospheric at times.
Programmed drum beats are also used quite a bit throughout the compilation while some of the keyboards and heavy parts remind me of some of the material released by Summoning and Fear Of Eternity. A lot of the vocals are only used briefly with the music focusing more on an atmospheric and epic style.
A lot of the music on the second demo keeps the same style of later material while showing a little bit more rawness than the recent material as well as keeping everything in a very slow musical direction which was also very common on the more recent music. The production sounds very dark and powerful while the lyrics cover nature, darkness, mysticism and spirituality themes.
In my opinion this is a very great sounding collection from Lustre and if you are a fan of this musical project, you should check out this compilation. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Ardour Of Autumn Part II" and "Welcome Winter II". 8 out of 10.
