Clean playing starts off the recording and a few seconds later the music gets heavier along with some death metal growls and then the music starts incorporating more melody along with a good amount of Swedish influences, the bass guitars bring a very heavy sound to the recording.
When synths are brought onto the album they bring a very dark and atmospheric/ambient sound to the recording and they are only used briefly on one the short instrumentals, while the main focus is on being heavy and epic as well as focusing on a more melodic side of doom/death metal and most of the tracks are very long and epic in length and they also bring in a small amount of clean singing on a couple of the tracks as well as a brief use of acoustic guitars which also dominate the 2nd instrumental before returning to a heavier direction on the following tracks as well as bringing in a small amount of blast and d beats.
Nightfell have a very interesting and dark sound to them taking the epic doom metal sound and mixing it in with the heaviness of death metal as well as also being influenced by the melodic side of that genre as well, the production is very professional sounding and the lyrics cover death, dying and darkness themes.
In my opinion Nightfell are a very great sounding melodic and epic doom/death metal b and and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "I Am Decay" The Hollowing" and "Funeral Dirge". 8/5 out of 10.
