The Eyes Of Desolation are a band from Costa Rica that plays a very dark form of post, goth metal and this is a review of their 2016 ep "Awake In Dead" which was released as a joint effort between Symbol Of Domination Productions and Cavan Records.
Clean playing starts off the ep and after a few seconds atmospheric keyboards make their presence known on the recording along with the music getting heavier and also adding in death metal growls along with some screams that are very heavily influenced by black metal and after awhile the music starts bring in more of a goth metal style.
Melodic singing vocals can be heard in some parts of the songs and they also mix both the clean and heavy parts together at times and the solos and leads also use a great amount of melody and add a touch of post metal to the bands musical style and the songs also stick to mostly a slow or mid paced musical direction.
The Eyes Of Desolation plays a musical style that takes a 90's style of goth metal while mixing it in with more modern post metal and elements of black, death and doom metal to create something very original, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and depressive themes.
In my opinion The Eyes Of Desolation are a very great sounding post, gothic metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Waking Death" and "I Found My Place". 8 out of 10.
