Scrivere questa recensione mi risulta particolarmente difficile.
Difficile, se non impossibile, tramutare in parole il pesantissimo carico di emozioni che un disco come "Damp Chill of Life" è in grado di suscitare in modo così straziante.
I "solchi" di questo album hanno poco a che fare con la semplice musica ed il loro contenuto travalica qualsiasi genere per arrivare a toccare l'animo di tutti coloro i quali si nutrono di dolore, tristezz...

None is “depressive black metal”—subgenre that is stubbornly unwilling to disappear despite the merciless derision and criticism coming from some quarters—and it’s presumably a human alone working in a hu/wo/it/man/cave somewhere in the state of Oregon, U.S., where it is grey, cold, cloudy and rainy, and where, to add insult to injury, the beaches do not even warm up during the months of July and August, so there might as wel...

Lançado neste ano de 2019, The Damp Chill of Life é o terceiro álbum do projeto anônimo intitulado “None”. Trata-se de um projeto de Atmospheric/Depressive Black Metal estadunidense, “misterioso”, diga-se de passagem. Sem delongas, o álbum é bem característico, tendo maior foco justamente na atmosfera, como apresentado pela faixa “You Did a Good Thing”, sem a presença do tradicional trio guitarra/baixo/bateria. Os t...

Damp Chill of Life is a poignant slab of cohesively crafted atmospheric black metal, using the DNA from Burzum’s earlier works to form the bulk of this nihilistic and oppressive soundscape. With that, it’s fairly easy to gather an idea of what to expect from this band’s third effort. Second-wave black metal is followed, almost, to the letter; be it the haunting guitar melodies, lo-fi fuzz, reverb-y drums, or the genre’s signatur...

On ne sait de None que bien peu de choses. Le groupe serait composé de deux musiciens et serait originaire du Pacifique Nord Ouest. Cette mystérieuse formation a déjà offert deux méfaits, un premier album éponyme sorti en 2017 et ''Life Has Gone On Long Enough'' en 2018. None revient donc seulement après un an avec ''Damp Chill Of Life'', qui sort le 11 avril via Hypnotic Dirge Records.

Another April is upon us and with it comes a new NONE release. Maybe it’s tied to a date of meaning for one of the anonymous members of the band and maybe it’s a reflection of the fact that at this point in April winter is still very present in more northern areas. Whatever the case Damp Chill of Life continues to see the band grow, this time with more focus than ever on the quieter aspects of its sound. There’s a distinct sense o...

None are a black metal band from the US and this is their third album.

The artists behind None have released an album every April since 2017’s very enjoyable self titled debut. In 2018 we were treated to the superior and very well-formed Life Has Gone on Enough, which saw the band’s blackened vision improve even further. Now it’s 2019, and we have Damp Chill of Life, the apex of their development so far.

None play atmospheric black...

Damp Chill Of Life is None’s third album, coming exactly 1 year after their second album Life Has Gone On Long Enough, which came 1 year after their self titled debut. The band, which is based in America’s Pacific Northwest, is made up of one or possibly 2 people who wish to remain anonymous (the information I got with this album credits Instrumentation to Anonymous, and Voice to Anonymous. I’m not sure if that is 2 different ...

There are good releases and then there are those albums that crawl under your skin and make you crave for more. NONE has continuously delivered some of the most punishing and bleak Atmospheric/Depressive Black Metal releases since its inception and “Damp Chill of Life” is yet another brilliant addition to their discography. Filled with haunting atmospheric elements and just the right amount of heaviness, this release is...

In complete spirit crushing fashion, NONE is set to unleash their third full length release titled Damp Chill of Life. After their self titled debut and last years record Life Has Gone On Long Enough, you can come to expect great depressive atmospheric black metal from these shadow lurkers. Destroying optimism, stealing light and replacing it with bitter shadow, NONE offers up seven brand new tracks that are sure to leave you in a pale...
