Wishdoom are a band that mixes traditional doom, power and classic metal together and this is a review of their 2011 album "Helepolis" which was released by Metal On Metal Records.
Drums range from slow to mid paced playing with no fast drumming or blast beats being present on this recording, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording, as for the pianos which are only used on the last song they bring a depressive sound to the music.
Rhythm guitars range from slow to mid paced riffing that combines traditional doom, power and classic metal together to create a sound of their own as well as a brief use of soft and clean playing, while the lead guitars are very traditional metal sounding guitar solos and leads, as for the acoustic guitars which are only used briefly use finger picking to add a more epic sound to the music.
Vocals are mostly clean singing power metal vocals with some shouts and spoken word parts being utilized at times, while the lyrics cover Mythology, Paganism, Fantasy and Battle themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on t his recording.
In my opinion Wishdoom are a very great sounding hybrid of doom, power and traditional metal and if you are a fan of this musical style, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Battle Of Plataea" "Cimmerian Plains - Son Of Crom" "Zues The Thunderer" and "Screaming Blade". RECOMMENDED BUY.
