Suicidal Solitude – Život Nikdy Nebol [Demo]

suicidal solitude – Život nikdy nebol [demo]

Info

With a band name like Suicidal Solitude you might not expect the brightest and most uplifting music. And… guess what, you are right. Although I am not entirely sure, my assumption is that Suicidal Solitude is a one-man act from Slovakia, at least the title translates from Slovak to something that means ‘Life Never Was’.

Musically Suicidal Solitude offers a very experimental kind of depressive Black Metal. Yet, not quite in the Lifelover-kind of fashion though, so no sudden bursts of clog dances, French vaudeville or strange nursery rhymes. Instead you’ll get served with some odd sounding dissonant riffs in a raw and lo-fi production with very basic drums and exasperatingly shrieking vocals. It all blends together in a very emotional and haunting atmosphere that tends to crawl under your skin. The repetitive nature of the music enhances the mesmerizing effect of the tracks, but each individual track has a bit of an own identity and sound which kind of breaks the coherence of the EP and requires a few spins to get used to.

As with most of the Pant Y Meddygon-releases, this is not quite music for the masses, but even more so for the true connoisseurs for everything that is weird and experimental but at the same time comes as bleak and black as life itself.
