Elegy Of Madness/New Era/WormHoleDeath Records/2017 Full Length Review
Elegy Of Madness are a band from Italy that plays a mixture of gothic and progressive metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "New Era" which was released by WormHoleDeath Records.
Electronic music sounds start off the album along with some elements of electro goth which also takes the music into more of a symphonic direction as well as mixing in with the heavier sections of the music and when the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard.
Operatic female vocals are a very huge part of the recording while the slow riffs gives the songs a touch of doom metal and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion and spoken word parts can also be heard briefly along with the songs also mixing in a great amount of prog metal elements.
As the album progresses stringed instruments can also be heard in certain sections of the recording and the music also brings in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while later songs also introduces clean playing and acoustic guitars onto the recording and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
Elegy Of Madness plays a style of gothic metal that also gives in a great amount of prog, symphonic, and electronic music elements to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and poetic themes.
In my opinion Elegy Of Madness are a very great sounding mixture of gothic and progressive metal and if you are a fan of those musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Apokaylpsis" "Fairy Tale" "Memories River" and "Reset". 8 out of 10.
