Ataraxy are a band from Spain that plays an old school mixture of doom and death metal and this is a review of their album "When All Hope Fades" which will be released in 2018 by Dark Descent Records.
A very dark, melodic and heavy doom metal sound starts off the album while all of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them along with some clean playing also being added into certain sections of some of the tracks along with some of the songs being very long and epic in length.
Vocals are mostly deep death metal growls while the solos and leads are done in a very dark yet melodic fashion along with the music also being very heavily rooted in the 90's as well as spoken word parts also being used briefly and when the music speeds up a decent mount of blast beats can be heard and as the album progresses atmospheric synths and clean playing can also be heard briefly.
Ataraxy plays a style of doom/death metal that goes back to the early 90's while also having its atmospheric moments, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover darkness and death themes.
In my opinion Ataraxy are a very great sounding old school 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 "Matter Lost In Time" and "The Blackness OF Eternal Night". 8 out of 10.
