Esperoza are a band from Moldova that plays a very extreme form of symphonic metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Aum Corrupted" which will be released in November by WornHoleDeath.
Female vocals start off the album and give t he recording a gothic and operatic feeling and once the death metal growls kick in the music starts going into more of a heavier and melodic direction while also introducing guitar solos and leads into songs and they also mix the symphonic and heavier sides together.
Some of the tracks are very long and epic in length and the riffs also bring in elements of prog metal at times and when screams are utilized they add in a touch of black metal and there is also a brief use of blast beats when the music speeds up and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and spoken word samples can also be heard on one of the songs and a couple of tracks also brings in a brief use of acoustic guitars and flutes as well as adding in influences from ethnic music.
Esperoza plays a style of symphonic goth metal that also mixes in the heaviness of black, doom and death metal to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and depressive themes.
In my opinion Esperoza are a very great sounding are a very great sounding extreme symphonic metal band with touches of black, doom, and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "A Broken Passage" "Tomb Of Deeds" "Desolate Grief" and "And Here Comes The Immaculacy". 8 out of 10.
