Dawn Of Tears are a band from Spain that plays a mixture of gothic and melodic death metal and this is a review of their 2013 album "Act III - The Dying Eve" which was released by Inverse Records.
The album starts out with atmospheric sounding synths which bring in classical and gothic elements as well as mixing in heavy parts along with melodic solos which also leads up to bass, screams and screams and after awhile orchestra elements and melodic female vocals are added onto the album.
On the second song more modern elements are added into the music as well as some melodic doom metal influences and after awhile the bass guitars start sounding more powerful and the music gets closer to melodic death metal while also keeping around a great amount of gothic elements and the album shows a great amount of emotion and sorrow and at time s acoustic guitars are brought into the recording and at time s you can also hear a small amount of blast beats.
On this recording Dawn Of Tears rake the modern Swedish death metal sound and mix in gothic and symphonic elements and they create an album that is very dark and emotional sounding as well as having a decent amount of catchy melodies.
Song lyrics cover dark and metaphysical themes, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Dawn Of Tears are a very great sounding mixture of gothic and melodic death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "A Cursed Heritage" "The Darkest Secret" "The 7th Seal" and "Prize Denied". 8 out of 10.
