Shadowpath are a band from Switzerland that plays a musical style which is a mixture dark, melodic death, progressive, symphonic and power metal and this is a review of their self released 2017 album "Rumours Of A Coming Dawn".
Rain and thunder sounds start off the album along with some keyboards and female vocals a few seconds later and they also mix in with the heavier sections of the music along with the slow riffs also mixing in elements of doom metal as well as the music also getting very symphonic at times.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion while t he music also gets very progressive at times along with the riffs also bringing in a great amount of melody and death metal growls are also utilized at times as well as all of the musical instruments sounding very powerful, some of the tracks are also very long and epic in length and as the album progresses acoustic guitars can also be heard in certain sections of the recording.
Shadowpath plays a musical style that takes dark, melodic death, symphonic, progressive and power metal and mixes them together to create something very original, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark, depressive and emotional themes.
In my opinion Shadowpath are a very great sounding mixture of dark, melodic death, doom, progressive, symphonic and power metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Chaos Equation" "Another Inquisitor" and "Beta". 8 out of 10.
