Moonscape are a solo project from Norway that plays a mixture of melodic death, doom and progressive metal and this is a review of his self released 2017 album "Entity".
Melodic guitar leads start off the album along with some doom metal riffing and symphonic elements a few seconds later while the riffing also brings in a great amount of melody and after awhile clean singing starts to make its presence known on the recording along with all of the musical instruments sounding very powerful.
Death metal growls can also be heard in certain sections of the recording along with some screams that also add in a touch of black metal while piano's can also be heard briefly and when saxophones are used briefly they give the music an early 70's progressive/folk rock feeling and some of the guitar leads also add in a touch of 80's metal.
There is only one track on the album and it is 40 minutes in length and also divided into 9 chapters and when the music speeds up a small amount of blast beats can be heard while clean playing and acoustic guitars are also added into some parts of the song and whispers can also be heard briefly.
Moonscape plays musical style that takes melodic death and atmospheric doom metal and mixes it with progressive rock to create a sound of his own, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics are a concept album based upon dark themes.
In my opinion Moonscape are a very great sounding mixture of progressive, doom and melodic death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project. 8 out of 10.
