Review from Metal Temple

SERTRALINE is “the most aurally decadent Post-Black Metal band to hit the scene in the last few years. Their impact comes primarily from a combination of melodic saturation and individual expertise.” Most of the members previously played together for over a decade in the band WHERE SHE WEPT, and the chemistry in this six-piece is obvious. “From Both our Hands” is the band’s second EP, and contains three tracks.

“Hounds of Av...

Sertraline should not be mistaken for the power outfit of the same name. This is an entirely different band, with an entirely different sound. They hover comfortably between the post metal of Cult Of Luna and the epic Atmospheric BM of Fen and Wolves In The Throne room. What I love with this EP entitled From Both Our Hands, is the way Sertraline are not afraid to do their own thing in their own way. They quite easily encapsulate t...

irst of all, for clarification this is Sertraline from the cold climes of Buffalo, USA, not the north of England one. Second, my enquiries took me to an anti-depressant of the same name. This Sertraline, whose second EP this is and whose members are the fallout of Where She Wept, are responsible for “aurally decadent post black metal”.

After an initial section where dark clouds build up and the sound is of crashing waves, a clas...

Canadian label Hypnotic Dirge Records certainly has one of the best underground Metal rosters with very unique bands, and now it has partnered with American outfit Sertraline to help them spread their very emotionally charged and powerful music. Delivering three tracks and nearly 20 minutes of lush Atmospheric Post-Metal, this release creates a very powerful atmosphere that is nicely delivered via crushing guitars and craf...

Sertraline  are  a  band  from  New  York  that  plays  an  atmospheric  form  of  post  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2019  ep  "From  Both  Our  Hands"  which  was  released  by  Hypnotic  Dirge  Records.

 A  very  dark  and  heavy  sound  starts  off  the  ep  while  clean  playing  can  also  be  heard  in  some  parts  of  the  music  and  they  also  bring  in  elements  of  post  rock.  All  of  the  ...
