Weight Of Emptiness - "Conquering The Deep Cycle"  gets reviewed by BLACKENED DEATH METAL ZINE! You can check it out here at this link! http://bringerofdeathzine.blogspot.com/2020/09/weight-of-emptinessconquering-dead.html

Weight  Of  Emptiness  are  a  band  from  Chile  that  plays  an  avant  garde  and  progressive  mixture  of  black,  doom  and  death  metal  and  this  is  a  review  of  their  2019  album  "Conquering  the  Dead  Cycle"  which  was  released  by  Australis  Records.

  Synths  and  symphonic  elements  start  off  the  album  and  also  mix  in  with  the  heavier  sections  of  the  songs.  When  guitar  solos  and  leads  are  utilized  they  are  done  in  a  very  melodic  style  while  operatic  sounding  female  vocals  are  also  added  into  some  parts  of  the  recording  and  death  metal  growls  are  also  a  very  huge  part  of  the  album.
 
  At   times  the  music  also  gets  very  progressive  sounding  while  clean  playing  and  acoustic  guitars  can  also  be  heard  on  some  of  the  tracks.  When  clean  male  vocals  are utilized  they  also  give  the  songs  more  of  an  avant  garde  feeling  and  the  slower  sections  of  the  songs  also  show  an  influence  of  doom  metal.

  Black  metal  screams  are  also  added  into  certain  sections  of  the  album  along  with  all  of the musical  instruments  also  having  a  very  powerful  sound  to  them.  Melodies  are  also  added  into  some  of  the  guitar  riffing  as  well  as  some  blast  beats  are  being  utilized  when  the  music  speeds  up,  at  times  the  music  also  gets  very  experimental  sounding  and  as  the  album  progresses  spoken  word  parts  can  also  be  heard  briefly  on  a  few  songs  and  they  also  bring  in  a  cover  Of  Twilight  Mist's  "Two  Tears  Alone" .  The  production  sounds  very  professional  while  the  lyrics  cover  introspection,  emotions.  death  and  despair  themes.

  In  my  opinion  Weight  Of  Emptiness  are  a  very  great  sounding  progressive  and  avant  garde  mixture  of  black,  doom  and  death  metal  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  those  musical  genres,  you  should  check  out  this  band.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Invisible  Mind  Workers"  "Lapse  Of  Insanity"  "Eleven  Ravens"  and  "Lurking  Hope".  8  out  of  10.

Weight Of Emptiness is a Chilean band of metal which practice a mixture style in which can be distinguished progressive, death, doom, and black metal. The band has its origins in 2012, when the former members from the missing band Twilight Mist, Juan Acevedo and Alejandro Bravo on guitars and Alejandro Ruiz on vocals, started to make their first compositions. On Twilight Mist they had a career path of almost 10 years, innovating on progressive metal trends, so decided continuing the legacy, adding actual elements to their music. The first formation was completed with bassist David Hernández and Mauricio Basso on drums, leader of Letargo band, with almost 25 years of career, both incorporating a rhythmic base full of progressive elements, which give Weight Of Emptiness the characteristic and avant-garde sound recognized into the Chilean metal scene.

Between August and September of 2016, they started recording their musical material for what will be their debut album. The drums are recorded at Alba Road studios by Eduardo Demangel and the rest in The Farm. The mixing and mastering is done by Richard Iturra.

At the end of the recording process, David Hernández left the band, so they recruited the bassist Manuel Villarroel.

On March 4, 2017 they independently released the first LP called “Anfractuous Moments For Redemption”, which is digitally edited worldwide thanks to the British label Sepulchral Silence on more than 14 streaming platforms. In physical format it is edited independently in digipack format.
