Abyssphere are a band from Russia that plays a melodic mixture of doom and death metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Na Puti K Zabveniyu" which was released by Endless Desperation Productions.
Atmospheric synths and drum beats start off the album and they also mix in with the heavier and melodic riffing a few seconds alter while the solos and leads also use a great amount of melody and spoken word parts are also utilized at times and when screams are utilized they add in a touch of black metal.
Most of the tracks are very long and epic in length while clean singing is also added into certain sections of the recording along with a great amount of death metal growls and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and as the album progresses acoustic guitars are added onto the recording,
At times the music gets very symphonic while nature sounds are added on some of the songs and they also bring in an instrumental track towards the end and they also bring in a cover of In Flames "Only For The Weak" which also shows the music getting more mid paced while most of the songs stick to a very slow musical direction.
Abyssphere plays a musical style that takes a melodic style of death metal and mixes it with atmospheric doom metal to create a sound oft heir own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in Russian and cover life, anguish, and desperation themes.
In my opinion Abyssphere are a very great sounding melodic mixture of doom and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Carthago delenda Est" "To Oblivion" "The End Of A Long Night" and "Only For The Weak". 8 out of 10.
