Long-running Pakistani doom metal band Dusk has released their first single off their upcoming fourth full-length ‘The Imaginary Dead’. The album will be released on Cyclopean Eye Productions and features members of Singapore black metal act Ilemauzar.
According to No Clean Singing where the track was premiered, “In this new song, “Ancient Shattered Moon“, massive drum strikes detonate like bombs and tumble like an avalanche of enormous boulders. No less massive, distorted chords moan and writhe, accompanied by inflamed screams, tormented growls, and haunting wails. Although the song proceeds at a heaving, staggering pace, its intensity is wrenching, and becomes even more striking thanks to a frenetic guitar solo whose fevered and freakish tones penetrate the mind with incinerating power.
As the song proceeds, the drumwork continues to hit with shuddering force, the savagery of the vocals is unabated, and the desolate tones of the riffing burrow deeper and deeper, becoming even more steeped in hopelessness. Near the end the rhythm section lock into a more vibrant and head-hooking groove as ethereal, wailing guitar leads provide glimmers of tragic beauty. The overarching effect of the song is both unnerving and mesmerizing, and altogether epic.”
