Septem Voices are a band from Russia that plays a very symphonic form of gothic metal and this is a review of their 2014 ep "Bez Vesny" which was released by Fono Ltd.
Acoustic guitar playing starts off the ep along with some symphonic elements, operatic female vocals and all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and after a couple of minutes the music gets heavier and also brings in melodic guitar leads and solos and on some of the tracks elements of electronic music are added onto t he recording.
You can hear a great amount of modern metal elements in the bands musical style along with some neo-classical and alternative rock traces and the violins when they are utilized gives the music more of a dark edge and all of the bands stick to a slow or mid pace d gothic metal direction.
Septem Voices plays a symphonic style of gothic metal that is very modern sounding, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in Russian and cover dark and depressive themes.
In my opinion Septem Voices are a very great sounding symphonic gothic metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Bez Vizney" and "S Toboi". 8 out of 10.
