Red Room Ensemble ate a band from Finland that plays a very melodic form of heavy metal and this is a review of their self released and self titled 2015 album.
A very hard, heavy and melodic heavy metal sound starts off the album along with some clean playing and acoustic guitars being added into certain sections of the recording and the vocals are all done in a clean singing voice along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them.
When solos and leads are utilized they are in a melodic musical direction and while the music has its roots in 80's metal the production and the way the band plays the songs gives the album more of a modern day feeling and the music has a progressive feeling at times along with the songs using a great mixture of slow and mid paced parts while the music does speed up at times and as the album progresses back up gang shouts can be heard in some of the tracks while one of the songs also brings in a brief use of female vocals and a power ballad.
Red Room Ensemble plays a style of heavy metal that is very melodic, traditional and old school but done with a more modern touch, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover violence, fear, fantasy and mysticism themes.
In my opinion Red Room Ensemble are a very great sounding melodic heavy metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "I Am Hunger" "Everything Went Red" and "We Come At Night". 8 out of 10.
