Black Lion Records is a label that has done well for itself over the past few years. It seems to specialize in black metal and death metal music that’s leaning towards the melodic and/or atmospheric side. The one that we have here is no different. Legacy of Emptiness are from Norway and play a similar style of atmospheric black metal with melodic strains. We have the privilege of doing an exclusive lyric video premiere for them that not only showcases the band’s music but also glorifies the stunning artwork their new album ‘Over The Past’ has and gives us a glimpse into their lyrical themes. The song is both dramatic and intense unlike the more mainstream sounding bands in this genre which offer a diluted version of the music. Legacy of Emptiness alternate the faster parts with sublime melodies and atmospheric bits, keeping it balanced and even memorable. Musically, the band’s sound is comparable to a mix of bands like Images at Twilight, Vintersorg, early Enslaved and even a bit of Dissection, although they’re obviously trying to do things in their own vision. Fans that are into the atmospheric/melodic spectrum of black metal will be suitably pleased, as was I. So sit back and enjoy this video premiere and don’t forget to book a copy for yourself. The album is due for release on June 12th, 2017.
