Soijl are a solo project from Sweden that plays an atmospheric form of doom/death metal and this is a review of his 2015 album "Endless Elysian Fields" which was released by Solitude Productions.
A very dark and atmospheric sound starts off the album along with some heavy and melodic guitars a few seconds as well a s some death metal growls and the music goes for more of an early 90's style of doom/death metal and you can also hear black metal screams being utilized at times and the solos and leads are also very dark and melodic.
All of the tracks are very long and epic in length and clean playing can also be heard in certain sections of the recording and the keyboards also make the music more atmospheric and as the album progresses spoken word parts can be heard in certain sections of the recording and all of the tracks remain true to a slow musical direction while the music does speed up briefly on one of the tracks.
Soijl plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in a melodic and atmospheric style of 90's style doom/death metal that also mixes in influences from black metal to create a style of his own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover despair, fear and suicidal themes.
In my opinion Soijl are a very great sounding atmospheric doom/death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Endless Elysian Fields" 'The Formation Of A Black Nightsky" and "The Shattering". 8 out of 10.
