Shiran are a band from Israel that plays a very melodic form of djent metal with elements of jazz and blues music and this is a review of their self released 2014 ep "Warm Winter Day" which will be released in November.
A very heavy and melodic djent metal sound starts off the ep along with some clean singing female vocals which also brings in a gothic metal feeling to the bands musical style and the band uses a good mixture of both clean and heavy parts and the music sounds almost mainstream enough to receive radio airplay.
Most of the music sticks to mostly a slow to mid paced musical direction and you can hear some elements of jazz and blues in the way the vocals are approached at times and the music lacks the heaviness and aggression of most bands that play this musical genre and they focus more on a melancholic and melodic musical style.
Shiran takes the djent metal style and mixes it with more of a pop orientated melodic hard rock sound to create their own musical style and while this is not something I would regularly listen to, I still feel the band is very good at what they are trying to achieve, the production sounds very powerful for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark and melancholic themes.
In my opinion Shiran are a very decent melodic djent metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Remain" and "Glint Of Light". 7 out of 10.
