Voices Of Destiny/From The ashes/Massacre Records/2010 CD Review

Voices Of Destiny are a symphonic/gothic metal band from Germany and this is a review of their 2010 album "From The Ashes" which was released by Massacre Records.

Drums are a mixture of slow to midpaced playing with no fast parts or brutal blasts, while the keyboards have an atmospheric/symphonic as well as gothic edge with some industrial style synths being used at times, as for the bass playing it has a very powerful tone that is very easy to hear on this recording that is rhythm bass.

Rhythm guitars are mostly slow heavy riffs that mix doom metal, thrash on the faster riffs and gothic metal together, while the lead guitars when they are used have a very melodic tone to them and there are some acoustic guitars that use alot of open chords and some fingerpicling solos that gives the music a depressing feel.

Vocals are mostly clean singing female vocals that mix power and gothic metal together with the male vocals being a mixture of high pitched black metal screams and deep death metal vocals, while the lyrics touch on hateful and depressing themes, as for the production on this album it sounds very professional and you can hear all of the instruments on this album.

In my opinion Voices Of Destiny are a very talented symphonic/gothic metal band and if you are a fan of this genre you should check this band out.
RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Twisting The Knife" "Icecold" "Apathy" and "Better Vision". RECOMMENDED BUY
