Quintessente are a band from Brazil that plays a progressive and atmospheric mixture of goth, doom, death and heavy metal and this is a review of their self released 2017 album "Songs From Celestial Spheres".
Atmospheric sounding synths start off the album before going into more of a heavier and symphonic direction while the screams also add in a touch of black metal along with some clean vocals also being used at times as well as the solos and leads being done in a very melodic style.
A great amount of melody can also be heard in the guitar riffing while spoken word parts are also utilized at times along with some female vocals also being added into some parts of the songs as well as all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and after awhile death metal growls also start to make their presence known.
At times the music gets very progressive while blast beats can also be heard briefly when the music speeds up along with the slower sections of the songs bringing in elements of doom metal as well as some goth rock and traditional metal influences also being utilized at times and as the album progresses stringed instruments can also be heard in certain sections of the recording and clean playing is also added onto a couple of track.s
Quintessente plays a musical style that takes atmospheric doom, death, heavy metal, goth and progressive rock and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover existentialism and the reflection of the forces that rule the human nature.
In my opinion Quintessente are a very great sounding progressive and atmospheric mixture of goth, doom, death and heavy metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Belief Of The Mind Slaves" "My Last Oath" "Eyes Of Forgiveness" and "Reflections Of Reason". 8 out of 10.
