Ravenous Dusk – The Dead Of Night (Album Review)

Release Date: March 31st 2022 - Seance Records

Ravenous Dusk - The Dead Of Night

An unholy union of like-minded souls imbued with darkness Ravenous Dusk is the combination of the ever-prolific Wraith (Naxzul, – vocals, guitars, and Sonic terror) and Balaam (Pestilential Shadows- Bass). The result is The dead of Night a four-track demo foreshadowing of what is which to come.

Combining the purest of raw black metal along with the Hammer horrors of dungeon Synth Ravenous Dusk excel in delivering power and fury ‘’Tongues Of Black Flame’’ combines the synth with their visceral assault. It is intense, melodic, and uniquely their own, whilst drawing on the sounds of some greats it is imbued with their own definitive indestructible prowess. Try and deny the hypnotic power of “Poison Shadow’’ a brilliantly executed six minutes of unholy glory that epitomizes the power of Black Metal and those who play it.

The Dead Of Night is all-consuming yet far too brief ‘’Matriarch of Hell” and the oppressive organ fear of instrumental “Animam Agere” round out the four offerings. Ravenous Dusk is another glorious piece of extreme atmospheric Australian Black Metal, that is chilling, haunting, and savagely epic.
