Like  Sorrow  are  a  solo  project  from  Austin,  Texas  that  plays  a  very  atmospheric  form  of  black  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  his  self  released  2023  ep  "Realm  Of  Despair".

  A  very  fast  and  raw  sound  starts  off  the  ep  along  with  a  great  amount  of  tremolo  picking  and  blast b eats.  Vocals  are  mostly  grim  sounding  black  metal  screams  while  the  riffs  also  add  in  a  decent  amount  of  melody  and  you  can  also  hear  all  of  the  musical  instruments  that  are  present  on  the  recording.

  The  songs  also  add  in  a  good  mixture  of  slow,  mid  paced  and  fast  parts  while  the  solos  and  leads  are  also  done  in  a  very  melodic  style.  Growls  can  also  be  heard  at  times  along  with  the  music  also  having  its  atmospheric  moments  and  the  music  also  mixes  in  influences  form  both  the  old  school  and  modern  eras  of  the  genre.

  Like  Sorrow  plays  a  style  of  black  metal  that  is  very  melodic  and  atmospheric  sounding.  The  production  sounds  very  dark  and  raw  while  the  lyrics  cover  death,  ghosts  and  the  concept  of  hell.

  In  my  opinion  Like  Sorrow  are  a  very  great  sounding  atmospheric  and  melodic  black  metal  solo  project  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  ep.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "A  Long  Walk  Into  My  Hell"  and  "From  The  Woods  She  Appeared".  8  out  of  10. occultblackmetalzine

Like Sorrow is a one man Black Metal project from Austin, TX, USA created in 2023 by Marc Williams ( Eisige Venen, Ba'alzamon ). Marc aims to bring his ideas to fruition with a more melodic and atmospheric sound. Unlike other projects this is more straight forward and does not contain the keyboard usage in Marc's other work. The subject matter revolves around death, ghosts, and the concept of Hell. Like Sorrow incorporates heavy guitars that can tarnish your soul and please the ghosts that lurk within the shadows of your mind. A cassette EP is in the works from Rotting Sun Records and will be released shortly. You can find Like Sorrow on all major social platforms as well as Bandcamp and YouTube.
