The Blessing Way – From Empty Plates We Dine
This week on HorrorAddicts.net we’re taking a look at the latest release from the gothic metal band The Blessing Way. The Blessing Way released their full-length “From Empty Plates We Dine” on Mourning Light Records on the 21st of June, 2018, telling a chilling story of decay and the macabre, laced with the esoteric of gothic Victorian New Orleans. Haunting pianos and arpeggiated guitars sailing over driving drums and tortured vocals carry this panoramic release to the underworldly depths of despair painted by the band’s composer Ollie Gill.
Every song on the album is a unique story of death and decay, bringing listeners on a continued sonic journey through the catacombs of the mind of the diseased. Each composition features stellar orchestral songwriting reminiscent of the baroque era, harpsichords and pianos dancing over the relentless metal aspect of the music. The only element of the music compromised to influence and direct comparison with other bands is the vocals, reminiscent of 90s true Norwegian black metal such as Darkthrone and Emperor.
I would highly recommend this album to anybody who enjoys any form of gothic metal, black metal, and symphonic metal, or anybody who is interested in a horror story in musical form.
This release is available worldwide now through Mourning Light Records. You can order your copy at MourningLightRecords.StoreEnvy.com. You can also hear more of The Blessing Way on all major music streaming platforms.
