Graveyard Of Shadows are a band from Spain that plays a very melodic form of doom/death metal and this is a review of their 2013 album "Shadows Of Life" which was released by FDA Rekotz.
Drums range from slow to mid paced playing with no fast drumming or blast beats being present on this recording, while the synths bring a very dark and atmospheric sound to the recording, as for the bass playing it has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars.
Rhythm guitars range from slow to mid paced doom/death metal riffs that utilize a good amount of melody as well as a great amount of early 90's influences in the riffing a s well as a brief use of clean playing, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding doom metal guitar solos and leads with some slides being used at times.
Vocals are mostly early sounding doom/death metal growls and screams that have a black metal feeling to them at times along with some clean singing being utilized on the last song, while the lyrics cover dark and depressing themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy, dark and old school sound to it with some of the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion Graveyard Of Shadows are a very great sounding melodic doom/death metal b and and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Shadows Of Life" "Follow Me" "Solitude's My Paradise" and "There Will Come Soft Rains". RECOMMENDED BUY.
