Jordan Vauvert Après un Through Twilight... passable, Mort crée Descending Further into Nothingness sous le patronyme d'Exiled from Light, un album de DSBM lancinant aux atmosphères spectrales bien meilleur. Malgré tout, le démon de la stagnation continue de le harceler : la batterie est le grand point fort mais certains schémas se répètent et, couplés aux riffs minimalistes, ils empêchent certaines pistes de se distinguer l'une de l'autre. Le début est un peu long mais cet album en vaut vraiment la peine ! Favorite track: Suffering Waits with Arms wide open.

zaphexa This album has a special place in my heart and it often leads to a lot of crying upon listening.

Its heavy and depressing. Soul crushing and apathetically hateful. Its memorizing, it feels as though one may sink further into nothingness and further into an existential spiral.

Its force is strong enough to shrink you, choke you; as if no escape is possible and your worst fear is the lack of being in the very presence of this sound. Favorite track: Further into Nothingness.

Back in 2007/2008, New Zealand Black Metal musician "Mort", who already had several projects on the go including Balthazar, SerpentThrone, Winds of Sorrow, and others began writing music for a new project, to be entitled "Exiled From Light". Unlike Mort's other projects to date, Exiled From Light was filled to the brim with depressive riffs and melodies, to encapsulate an absolute sense of apathy, disgust, listlessness, and existential dread. "

Descending Further into Nothingness" was the first album to be completed and released under the Exiled From Light monikor, an album that was genuinely claustrophobic, bleak, and hopeless with sharp icy riffs shrouded in melancholic and ominous keyboard tones.

Six great tracks of pure melancholy across 50 minutes of music. Highly recommended for fans of Austere, Make a Change...Kill Yourself, Hypothermia, Apati, Trist, and all listeners of Depressive Black Metal!
