White Nights are a band from the United States that has had music reviewed before in this zine and on this recording plays a very abstract mixture of black metal and death rock and this is a review of their ep "Solanaceae" which will be released in 2021 by Iron Bonehead Productions.
Programmed beats start off the album along with some riffing and synths a few seconds later which also shows an influence of death rock. Clean goth vocals can also be heard in some parts of the recording while all of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them.
Elements of atmospheric black metal are also utilized quite a bit throughout the recording while the music sticks mostly to either a slow or mid tempo direction. A touch of doom metal can also be heard in the slower sections of the music and the closing track is also very long and epic in length and the closing track shows the recording going for more of a psychedelic direction.
On this recording White Nights goes for more of a death rock direction while also maintaining some touches of black metal. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and psychedelic themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from White nights and if you are a fan of black metal influenced death rock, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Halluncinogenic Black Clouds" and "Solanaceae". 8 out of 10.
