Mena Brinno are a band from Tampa, Florida that plays a very symphonic form of gothic metal and this is a review of their self released 2013 album "Princess Of The Night".
Drums range from slow to mid paced playing with no fast drumming or blast beats being present on this recording, while the keyboards bring a very atmospheric, symphonic, progressive and gothic sound to the recording with some folk music elements being used at times, as for the bass playing it has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow to mid paced gothic metal riffs that utilize alot of dark sounding melodies in t he riffing, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding gothic metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are all clean singing operatic gothic metal vocals, while the lyrics cover dark, depressing and poetic themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy, dark and professional sound for being a self released recording where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this album.
In my opinion Mena Brinno are a very great sounding symphonic gothic metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Princess Of The Night" "Serpentine Lullaby" and "Sacrifice". RECOMMENDED BUY.
