Under the Moon They Wander Until Fading Away

Rated 3.67/5 (73.33%) (3 Votes)

This is apparently a new project by a guy named M. Lehto, who is the instigator of a similar Atmospheric Black Metal band called October Falls, who have been toiling in the underground for a couple of decades now. This splinter project is so new it doesn't even have its own Facebook page, so there's precious little info to be found.

If you imagine what an atmospheric, one-man Black Metal band with neofolk leanings would sound like, this is that exactly. Slow, moody, melodic, with a lot of shade to the riffs and space for piano and acoustic interludes. I like this, but it sounds like so many other bands of this type and does nothing at all to stand out even a little bit, that I can't rate it too highly. If you like this kind of stuff—Summoning, Dwarrowdelf, Sojourner, etc.—this will do fine, but there's nothing distinct about it.
