If you’ve come to Hope Drone hoping for hope, you might be disappointed. Their sound is a thickened, tar-black thing, more likely to drag you down than lift you up. Some of it coalesces into drones though! Cloak Of Ash is well textured and potently played sludge / black metal, released by Relapse.

If you can commit yourself to Cloak of Ash—all its diversity and all the time it consumes—it’s worth it. It impresses in the way it manipulates various elements of atmospheric black metal while creating a sound that is truly encompassing. Atmospheric exploration in sound is the embodiment of this record, and it works brilliantly. This ties in many of the styles that have already pushed the limits of what defines “black metal” and uses them to create something ambitiously unique. Hope Drone has clearly shown us what they are capable of in style and quality with Cloak of Ash.
