Marienbad are a band from Germany that plays gothic/doom metal with a black metal edge and this is a review of their 2011 album "Werk One-Nachtfall" which was released by Massacre Records.
Drums are mostly slow to midpaced playing with no fast parts or blast beats, while the keyboards have a very depressive nd tragic feel to them, as for the bass playing it has a very dark tone that is kind of mixed down low in the music and seems to follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars and at times you can hear the instrument.
Rhythm guitars are mostly slow to midpaced doom/gothic metal riffs that also utilize a good amount of melody and there are little to no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.
Vocals are mostly clean singing gothic vocals with some high pitched black metal growls and whispers being thrown in at times and some spoken word passages being use on one song, while the lyrics cover tradegies, death and suicide and there are 2 versions of this album one in English and the other one in German, a for the production it sounds very powerful and professional sounding.
In my opinion Marienbad are a very good gothic metal band and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Roslins Curse" "The Yellow Mansion Of Suicide" and "Under Dam Crescent". RECEMMONDED BUY.
