Elsewhere Shine are a band from Serbia that plays an avant garde form of gothic/doom metal and this is a review of their self released 2013 demo "The Wired".
A dark and atmospheric sound starts off the ep before going into a sorrowful and acoustic direction along with female gothic vocals and after awhile keyboards and guitar leads become a part of the music along with spoken word parts before adding in the heaviness of metal which leads to a mixture of melodic vocals and death metal growls.
The 3 tracks on this recording are very long and epic in length and on the alter tracks ambient sound s become a huge part of the music along with a mixture of both clean and heavy parts which also bring a poetic feeling to the music and the death metal growls add an evil edge to the recording when they are utilized..
Elsewhere Shine bring in a very interesting sound with their music with the heaviness of doom/death metal mixed in with the keyboards and gothic vocals along with acoustic guitars that bring a classical and folk music feeling to the recording, the production sounds very professional and the lyrics cover poetic and mythology themes.
In my opinion Elsewhere Shine are a very great sounding avant garde, gothic doom/death metal and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this demo. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Sepia". 8 out of 10.
