Beyond Forgiveness are a band from Colorado Springs, Colorado that plays a very symphonic form of goth metal and this is a review of their self released 2017 album "The Great Wall".
Symphonic elements start off the album and also mix in with the heavier and more melodic sides of the music while death metal growls are also used at times along with the riffing also mixing in doom metal influences and when female vocals are utilized they give the songs a more operatic feeling.
A great amount of goth metal elements can also be heard quite a bit throughout the recording while the solos and leads are also done in a very melodic fashion along with some of the tracks being very long and epic in length and some songs also bring in a small amount of acoustic guitars and.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion and as the album progresses classical orchestras and choirs are added onto the recording while grim screams when are utilized they add in a touch of black metal along with a small amount of blast beats being heard when the music speeds up briefly and there is also a brief use of spoken word parts on a later track.
Beyond Forgiveness plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in symphonic and goth metal while also bringing in the heaviness of death metal to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover fantasy themes.
In my opinion Beyond Forgiveness are a very great sounding symphonic goth metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "End Of Time" "Imprisoned" "Moment Of Truth" and "I Will Fight Until The End". 8 out of 10.
