After four years of hibernation, Australian post-black metal band Hope Drone have arrived with their second album, fittingly titled Void Lustre. Clocking in at just over an hour, Void Lustre builds on the atmosphere Hope Drone established on their first album, Cloak of Ash.
The sprawling songs allow Hope Drone’s music to breathe, almost every song stretching out past the ten-minute mark.
“Void Lustre had to be dragged into existence through loss, depression and doubt,” Hope Drone tell Decibel. “Songs were crafted, reformed and discarded.
“Ultimately however this record is a continuation of our search for catharsis, comfort and hope found in walls of sound made only for ourselves and those like us.”
Void Lustre is out tomorrow.
