Ancient Moon are an international band with members from Belgium, France and Switzerland that plays an ambient form of black metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Vvlture" which was released as a joint effort between Satanath Records, Cold Raw Records and Metal Throne Productions.
A very dark, raw and depressive black metal sound starts off the album along with some melodic riffing and after a minute the music goes into more of a faster musical direction that also introduces blast beats and grim screams onto the recording along with some mournful clean singing being utilized at times.
There is only one track on the recording and it is close to 30 minutes in length and the song also brings in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the vocals also get very high pitched and suicidal at times and after awhile more atmospheric and ambient sounds find their way onto the recording along with some synths also being utilized at times while some parts also bring in a small amount of clean guitars.
Ancient Moon brings a style of black metal onto this recording that is very raw, grim, depressive and atmospheric and mixes it with ambient music to create a style of their own, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover Occultism themes.
In my opinion Ancient Moon are a very great sounding ambient black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. 8 out of 10.
