Mizantropia are a band from Ukraine that plays a very extreme form of gothic metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Oblivion" which was released by Metal Scrap Records.
A very dark, heavy and atmospheric sound starts off the album along with some powerful sounding synths and a few seconds later melodic female vocals are added into the music along with some high pitched screams that also gives the music more of a black metal feeling and the songs also bring in a very 90 orientated gothic/doom metal sound.
Acoustic guitars and clean playing can be heard in certain sections of the recording and the music also mixes in some modern goth and prog metal elements at times and you can also hear a great amount of melody in the guitar riffing at times and some of the faster sections of the songs bring in a small amount of blast beats and the solos and leads also stick to a very melodic musical direction and some of the tracks also bring in a small amount of death metal growls and influences and as the album progresses a small amount of folk instruments can be heard briefly.
Mizantropia plays a style of gothic/doom metal that is very heavily rooted in the 90's and also adds in a touch of death, black and modern metal to make their music heavier fro this genre, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover love and sorrow themes.
In my opinion Mizanthropia are a very great sounding extreme gothic metal band and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Castle" "Tomorrow Never Comes" "Fragments Of The Void" and "Insomnia". 8 out of 10.
