Moonlit Wake - demo [2010]

Artist: Moonlit Wake
Title: demo
Genre: Atmospheric Black Metal
Country: USA
Year: 2010

Track List:
  1. Enduring Faith
  2. Twilight
  3. Nocturnal Comfort
  4. Moonlit Wake
I know very little about this band, except they're were formed in 2008 in Virginia under the initial name "Winter Without End". However, their first and only (so far) demo is really amazing. The quality of recording and songwriting is excellent, especially for a first demo release, and the atmosphere is great too, even though the music may be a bit unoriginal and simplistic (but that's not a big flaw for an young band). The US black metal scene has recently put out a lot of very good atmospheric/"blackgaze" albums, but this demo look remarkable even in face of this quite tough competition. Some people may find it too "soft" or slow, but if you're looking for some good instrumental atmospheric black metal / blackgaze, you won't be disappointed. Looking forward for their full-length release!
