Ex-Animo are a band from Ukraine that plays a mixture of dark, goth, doom and death metal and this is a review of t heir 2016 album "Neverday" which was released by Metal Scrap Records.
A very symphonic keyboard sound starts off the album and also mixes in with the heavier guitars a few seconds later while also using melodies at times and after a minute female vocals and clean playing are added into some parts of the songs and death metal and black metal screams are also a very huge part of the recording.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and when the music speeds up a small amount of blast beats can be heard and the solos and leads also stick to a melodic musical direction and some songs bring in a small amount of spoken word parts and one track brings in a brief use of spoken word parts and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length along with most of the music sticking either to a slow or mid paced musical direction and there is also a brief use of violins and acoustic guitars on a later song.
Ex-Animo plays a musical style that takes goth, doom and death metal and mixes them together with a touch of black metal to create a musical style of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and depressive themes.
In my opinion Ex-Animo are a very great sounding mixture of goth, doom and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Aeons Of Sadness" "Shattered Universe" and "Scream Of Silence". 8 out of 10.
