Ghost Of Mary are a band from Italy that plays a symphonic mixture of goth and melodic death metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Oblivaeon" which will be released in December by Revalve Records.
Nature sounds start off the album before adding in goth style keyboards a few seconds later that also have a symphonic edge to them and stringed instruments are also used at times and after the intro acoustic guitars are added onto the recording along with some clean singing vocals and all of the musical instruments sound very powerful.
After awhile the music starts getting more heavy and melodic while also introducing death metal growls and high pitched screams onto the recording while also mixing the clean and symphonic parts into the heavier sections of the songs and the solos and leads also use a great amount of melody and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and blast beats are also utilized at times. and as the album progresses elements of classical music can be heard and they also bring in an instrumental before going back to vocal tracks.
Ghost Of Mary plays a music style that takes melodic death metal and mixes it with goth and symphonic elements along with a touch of doom to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are a concept album based upon ;ife and death with a metaphysical touch.
In my opinion Ghost Of Mary are a very great sounding mixture of goth and melodic death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Moon And The True" "Nothing" and "The End Is Only The Beginning". 8 out of 10.
