Beautality are a duo from the United Kingdom that plays an atmospheric form of post black metal and this is a review of their album "Einfallen: A Tale ov Torment & Triumph" which will be released by Nordavind Records in 2015.
Acoustic guitar playing starts off the album and they bring in a good mixture of full chords and open note finger picking and a few second s later clean singing vocals, drums and melodic guitar leads start becoming a huge part of the music before adding in grim black metal screams and you can hear a good amount of post rock elements throughout the tracks.
Most of the songs are very long and epic in length and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and at times spoken word parts can be heard in certain sections of the recording and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and after awhile the guitars start bringing in a more heavy and atmospheric black metal sound to the recording.
At time s the music does go into more of a fast and raw black metal direction along with a decent amount of blast beats while the main focus remains more on a melodic and atmospheric post metal sound which also brings in elements of darkwave and dream pop at times and the songs also bring in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and one of the tracks also brings in a small amount of melodic chants that also gives the music a pagan metal feeling while some of the screams bring in some traces of depressive black metal on one of the later songs and on the last track you can also hear some elements of doom metal in the slower sections.
Beautality plays a style of post black metal that is very melodic and atmospheric sounding while also adding in a good amount of progressive elements and influences from a variety of many different genres and most of the tracks are very close to 20 minutes in length, the production sounds very powerful and heavy sounding while the lyrics are a concept album that deals with both the mental and astral planes.
In my opinion Beautality are a very great sounding atmospheric post black metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Devil's Elixir" and "Messias". 8 out of 10.
