While Sun Ends are a band from Italy that plays a progressive form of post death metal with some elements of doom and black metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Terminus" which will be released in August by WOOAAARGH.
Ambient sounds start off the album along with some classical guitars a few seconds later and after a minute female vocals are added onto the recording before going into a heavier prog metal direction which also introduces death metal growls and black metal s creams onto the recording and all of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them.
When the music speeds up blast beats can be heard and the riffs also use a great amount of melody and the solos and leads also stick to a very dark, progressive and melodic style while they also mix female vocals in with the heavier parts at times and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length.
At times the music brings in electronic music elements while the songs also alternate between both clean and heavy parts quite a bit throughout the recording and one track also brings in a brief use of blast beats while the songs usually stick to either a slow or mid paced musical direction and the cleaner sections also bring in a touch of post rock.
While Sun Ends plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in progressive death metal but also adds in elements of black, doom and post metal to create a style of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover humans, society and philosophical themes.
In my opinion While Sun Ends are a very great sounding progressive, post death metal band with elements of black and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Cycles" "Seasaw" and "Elevation". 8 out of 10.
