Evolvent are a band from France that started out as a doom/death metal band but have evolved more into a symphonic/gothic metal band over the years and this is a review of their 2015 album "Whatever Happens" which was released by Bernett Records.
A very symphonic sound starts off the album giving the recording a classical music feeling and after the intro the music goes into more of a heavy and melodic direction as well as introducing guitar leads and clean singing female vocals to the music and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them.
Symphonic and heavy parts mix together quite a bit throughout the recording and the songs also stick to either a slow or mid paced musical direction and as the album progresses death metal growls can be heard in certain sections of the recording and a few ballads can be heard on the album while there still is a good amount of heavy tracks which also bring in a small amount of male vocals at times.
Evolvent strays away from the doom/death metal sound of the earlier recordings and creates some quality symphonic/gothic metal on this recording the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Evolvent are a very great symphonic/gothic metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Dawn" "Love Dose'nt Love Me" "We Are" and "Siempere". 8 out of 10.
