Eternal Tears Of Sorrow are a band from the United Kingdom that h as been featured before in this zine with a musical style that combines gothic, doom and melodic death metal together and this is a review of t heir 2013 album "Saivon Lapsi" which was released by Massacre Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with only a small amount of blast beats being utilized at times, while t he keyboards bring a very dark, atmospheric, gothic and symphonic sound to the recording as well as a brief use of violins, as for the bass playing it has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine gothic, doom and melodic death metal together to create a sound of t heir own, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding metal guitar solos and leads, as for the acoustic guitars when utilized use finger picking and full chords to add more darkness to the music.
Vocals range from high pitched melodic death metal screams to clean singing male and female vocals as well as a brief use of back up shouts, while the lyrics cover dark themes, as for t he production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy, dark and professional sound to it where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording with some of the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Eternal Tears of Sorrow and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Dark Alliance" "Dance Of December" "The Day" and "Angelheart Ravenheart". RECOMMENDED BUY.
