Dimicandum are a band from Ukraine that plays atmospheric metal which combines doom, gothic, and death metal with metalcore and traditional metal and this is a review of their 2012 album "The Legacy Of Gaia" which was released by Metal Scrap Records.
Drums range from slow to mid paced drumming with not much in the way of fast playing or blast beats, while the keyboards bring a very dark and atmospheric sound to t he music, as for the bass playing it has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars.
Rhythm guitars range from slow to mid paced riffs that combine the atmospheric elements of death, doom, gothic and traditional metal with metalcore along with a great amount of dark sounding melodies being thrown into the riffing as well as a brief use of soft and clean playing, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding heavy metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals range from high pitched screams to deep death metal growls that have somewhat of a metalcore edge to them at times as well as some high pitched screams that bring a slight black metal influence to the music, while the lyrics cover a variety of occult topics such as Gaia, Sumerian, and Atlantis along with other d ark and metaphysical themes, as for the production it h as a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound to it
In my opinion Dimicandum are a very great sounding atmospheric metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "At The Gates Of Ishtar" "Sumerian's Warning" and "Bring Me Down To MY Atlantis". RECOMMENDED BUY.
