Schwarzer Engel are a band that plays a very dark form of gothic metal with some doom and black metal influences and this is a review of their 2013 ep "Schwarze Sonne" which was released by Massacre Records.
Drums range from slow to mid paced drumming with no fast playing or blast beats being present on this recording, while the synths bring a very dark, atmospheric, symphonic and gothic sound to the recording, as for the bass playing it has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars.
Rhythm guitars range from slow to mid paced European style gothic metal riffs that are very dark and melodic sounding, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding gothic metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are all clean singing male and female gothic metal vocals, while the lyrics are written in German and cover dark themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound to it.
In my opinion Schwarzer Engel are a very great sounding dark gothic metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Schwarze Sonne" and "Der Faehrmann". RECOMMENDED BUY.
