The Gardnerz are a band from Sweden that plays a very melodic and heavy form of doom/death metal with a black metal edge and this is a review of their 2011 album "The System Of Nature' which was released by Abyss Records.
Drums range from slow to mid paced drumming with not much in the way of fast playing or blast beats, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound to it.
Rhythm guitars range from slow to mid paced doom/death metal riffs that are very dark and melodic sounding, while the lead guitars are very dark and melodic sounding guitar solos and leads as for the acoustic guitars when they are utilized they use finger picking and full chords to give the music a progressive/folk music feeling to the music.
Vocals are mostly deep doom/death metal growls mixed in with some high pitched black metal screams and whispered vocals as well as brief clean singing, while the lyrics cover philosophical ideas, religion and greed of mankind, as for the production it has a very dark, heavy, powerful and professional sound to it and you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion The Gardnerz are a very good sounding progressive doom/death metal band with a black metal and melodic edge and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band.
