Sanguine Glacialis are a band from Quebec, Canada that plays a mixture of melodic death and goth metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "Hadopelagic" which was released by WormHoleDeath Records.
Ritualistic spoken word parts start off the album along with some acoustic guitars a few seconds alter which also leads to a heavier direction while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them as well as the screams also adding in a touch of black metal and they also mix the symphonic and heavy parts together.
When female vocals are utilized they add in more of an operatic goth metal style while death metal growls are also used quite a bit throughout the recording along with some blast beats in the faster sections of the songs as well as the solos and leads being done in a very melodic yet technical fashion.
All of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them while clean playing is also added on some of the tracks along with the songs also bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as some of the tracks being very long and epic in length and as the album progresses spoken words also make a return in certain sections of the recording.
Sanguine Glacialis plays a musical style that takes melodic death and goth metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in a mixture of French and English and cover darkness and mythology themes.
In my opinion Sanguine Glacialis are a very great sounding mixture of melodic death and goth metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Kraken" "Funeral For Inner Ashes" "Deus Ex Machina" and "Monsters'. 8 out of 10.
