Turkey's Viranesir have returned once again with a new album with the music style this time around being synth driven blackened doom metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "/Children's Suicide Music ((Ritual Of (Love) Is The Key))" which was released by Merdumgiriz.
A very dark and atmospheric ambient synth sound starts off the album along with some programmed beats and clean singing vocals that also use depressive black metal screams at times and the music also gets psychedelic and experimental at times along with soem spoken word ritualistic parts being utilized at times.
Female vocals can be heard in some parts of the songs and the music at the time has the atmosphere that reminds me of some horror movies that involve children and violent nightmares and there are also certain sections of the recording where real drums are utilized and they also add a small amount of blast beats onto the recording and the songs also bring in elements of doom metal and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length.
Viranesir creates an album that stays away from the guitar orientated stuff of previous recordings and focuses more of a synth sound this time around that has the feeling of a nightmare soundtrack while still having elements of depressive black metal and doom, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics cover depression, child's nightmares and suicidal themes.
In my opinion this is a very great sounding recording from Viranesir and if you are a fan of black and doom metal influenced synth music, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Lovegate" "Darkness Always" and "In The Underground". 8 out of 10.
