LICHTBLICK is a Depressive Post Black Metal band from Vienna, Austria, formed in summer 2013 by M. (rhythm guitar) and A. (vocals) as a two-man project. After some line-up changes over the time D. (lead guitar) and J. (drums) joined the band in 2015 and completed the current set-up. In 2015 the band independently released their first EP “Feel free to lose your life”, which features 4 tracks. The sound on the EP is atmospheric, dark and depressive, especially the mournful vocals are an outstanding part on this piece.

The first full length studio album entitled “Phrenesis” followed in 2018 with 6 songs on it and was also released and distributed by the band itself. The group kept the original atmospheric and depressive texture with the forlorn vocals, although the previous line-up changes surely made a difference on the overall sound.
