The truth is that there are few reviews I've done of bands coming from Iran, and this is one of them, this is the SILENT PATH and back albumsm "Mourner Portraits" , released through Hypnotic Dirge Records brings us almost 53 minutes of cutting depressive black metalsimilar to what we have offered bands like Burzum , early My Dying Bride , Morgh and Nortt. 's compositions SILENT PATH is characterized by its density and darkness, created from a part-time depressive melodies with guitars, and ripped the use of synthesizers and piano, combined with the dark voice of the singer, who is slowly whispering to around records more ragged and aggressive. A mixture of Black Metal cutting guitars with a more general atmosphere aimed at Doom and that's when the influences are My Dying Bride and Paradise Lost   in its early days, with such tunes as characteristics that marked these bands in its infancy in the music scene. A job that has you listening as you will create that feeling of despair and loneliness and that is clearly not come to all fans of the genre and I think that is focused on a particular group of fans who love these sounds.

Rating: 3/5
