𝕾𝖎𝖓 𝖑𝖁: 𝕺𝖛𝖊𝖗𝖆𝖑𝖑: Where do I begin with this new band, Firstly this is not your typical melodic death metal band, What you learn, that this is a Finnish band, and everything coming from the icy realm of Finland, you’re in for a uniquely compelling experience.
Kicking off with the first track ‘Murder of Crows’, you think to yourself, this is going be a (just your) traditional melodeath album, it’s when you reach the second track, onwards to the end, the listener is in for a surprise with this crown of crows, consisting of ten versatile metal tracks, which shows a wide range of influences.
Each track is a deliverance of various compositions of epic hard-driven riffs, vocals ranging from growls to clean/shouting vocal tone, filled with musicianship & craftsmanship of artisanship
The first single “Stars And Constellations” dwells more on the sentimental side of the album.
The band’s lyrical themes, deal with the “collapsing” on a personal and societal level. There are also sci-fi-themes as a bonus.
*sound of their own*
** versatile metal with a range of influences & traditional melodeath**
