The Gardnerz are a band from Sweden that has been featured before in the zine with a musical style I would describe as being melodic doom/death metal and this is a review of their self released 2013 single "Exiting Reality".
"Exiting Reality Part I" opens up with drum beats and a few seconds later heavy and melodic sounding guitar riffs kick in along with some powerful bass guitars and melodic guitar solos a few seconds later which leads to some deep death metal growls and a couple of minutes later there is a brief use of clean singing vocals along with a small amount of acoustic guitars.
"Exiting Reality Part II" begins with melodic and technical sounding guitar leads along with bass guitars and drums before adding in heavy guitar riffs which then leads to some black metal screams before adding in clean singing and after another guitar solo death metal growls start to kick in.
Song lyrics cover philosophical themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where being a self released recording where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the single.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from The Gardnerz and if you are a fan of melodic doom/death metal, you should check out this single. RECOMMENDED BUY.
