range from slow to mid paced drumming with not much in the way of fast
playing or blast beats, while the keyboards bring a very dark,
atmospheric and gothic sound to the music, as for the bass playing it
has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming
out of the guitars and at times they have a very powerful sound to them.
guitars range from slow to mid paced riffs that combine death, doom,
atmospheric and gothic metal to create a sound of their own with a good
amount of dark sounding melodies being thrown into the riffing, while
the lead guitars are very melodic sounding guitar solos and leads, as
for the acoustic guitars when they are utilized they use finger picking
to enhance the darkness that is coming out of the music.
from clean singing, whispers, deep death metal growls and some high
pitched black metal screams as well as a brief use of spoken word parts
in addition there are some female vocals being utilized on one song,
while the lyrics cover Darkness, Satanism, and Occult themes, as for the
production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound
to it and you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present
on this recording.
In my opinion Lethargia are a very great sounding
atmospheric hybrid of gothic, doom and melodic death metal and if you
are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording.
