Midnattsol are a band from Germany that plays a symphonic form of goth metal with some touches of folk and melodic death metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "The Aftermath" which will be released on May 25th by Napalm Records.
Acoustic guitars start off the album along with some elements of folk music and keyboards before going into a heavier direction which also introduces melodic guitar leads onto the recording while the female vocals are done more in a clear style and also gives the songs more of a goth metal feeling.
Both the symphonic and heavy parts are mixes together quite a bit throughout the recording while a small amount of blast beats can also be heard when the music speeds up along with a few of the tracks being very long and epic in length and as the album progresses folk instruments can also be heard in certain sections of the recording and as the album progresses a small amount of growling vocals can also be heard in the background briefly, one of the later tracks is also an instrumental and a later song also brings clean male vocals onto the recording.
Midnattsol plays a musical style that takes folk music and mixes ti with symphonic and goth metal along with a touch of melodic death metal to create something original, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Fantasy, Mythology and Nature themes.
In my opinion Midnattsol are a very great sounding mixture of folk, symphonic and goth metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "rthe Purple Sky" "Ikje glem meg" "The Unvieled Trith" adn "Forsaken". 8 out of 10.
