In Dornen - Trauer - Reviewed By occultblackmetalzine ! Check it out here at this link:

  In  Dornen  are  a  solo  project  from  Germany  that  plays  a  very  raw  and  melancholic  form  of  post  black  metal  with  elements  of  ambient  and  this  is  a  review  of  his  2023  album  "Trauer"  which  was  rleeased  by  Kvlt  Und  Kaos  Productions.

  Spoken  word  parts  start  off  the  album  along  with  some  melancholic  and  melodic  sounding  riffing  a  few  seconds  later.  Vocals  are  mostly  high  pitched  black  metal  screams  which  also  add  in  a  depressive  touch  at  times  while  the  music  also  adds  in  a  great  amount  of  post  metal  elements  and  a  couple  of  the  tracks  are  also  long  and  epic  in  length.

  When  guitar  solos  and  leads  are  utilized  they  are  also  done  in  a  very  melodic  style  while  the  keyboards  add  influences  of  ambient  when  they  are  introduced  into  the  music.  The  album  also  has  its  atmospheric  moments  and  during t he  faster  sections  of  the  songs  a  great  amount  of  blast  beats  can  be  heard.

  When  tremolo  picking  is  added  into  the  fast  riffing  they  also  give  the  music  more  of  a  raw  feeling  along  with  most  of  the  album  sticking  to  either  a  slow  or  mid  tempo  direction,  each  track  also  sounds  very  f\different  from  each  other  and  clean  playing  and  whispers  can  also  be  heard  briefly.  The  production  sounds  very  professional  while  the  lyrics  are  written  in  German  and  cover  emotion,  despair  and  poetic  themes. 

  In  my  opinion  In  Dronen  are  a  very  great  sounding  raw  and  melancholic  post  black  metal  solo  project  with  elements  of  ambient  and  if  you  are  a  fan  of  this  musical  genre,  you  should  check  out  this  album.  RECOMMENDED  TRACKS  INCLUDE  "Die  Welt  wiegt  so  schwer"  and  "Mein  letzler  Tag".  8  out  of  10. - occultblackmetalzine

Short Bio: In Dornen from Losenstein in Upper Austria was launched in 2008. Driven by the inner desire to  create music that touches and invites the listener on a journey. After more than 10 years and several releases, In Dornen is back with its story of a returning wanderer. In Dornen invite you on a special journey. Ambient  sounds, whispered poetry passages, loosened up and interrupted by experimental acoustic pieces. Dark Melancholic rock and black metal passages combine to create a unique sound journey. In Dornen is raw,  authentic, honest, dreamy and ugly at the same time.
