Opaque Lucidity : Opaque Lucidity



Opaque Lucidity is a Russian band which composes what I now choose to call "Deathscapes". Long, sparse passages of synthesizer swells (both in soundscape and string form), distant guitar chords and otherworldly death growls. What we have here is 4 musical movemets of pure atmosphere...and the atmosphere is bleak.

Opaque Lucidity occupies a dark space. Feelings of fear, hopelessness and unrest permeate your being as this music plays. There is no light to guide you...as if being in the belly of a mountain. There is no warmth to comfort you...only cold dampness. All at once you feel lost in a horizonless void and buried alive. In the few moments of seemingly pending relief, you are once again plunged into deeper emptiness.

This is desolate. This is black. This is darkness.
