Adfail are a band from Russia that plays a dark mixture of goth, doom and death metal and this is a review of their 2018 ep "Poetry of Ruins" which was released by Another Side Records.
A very slow, dark and heavy sound starts off the ep along with some atmospheric keyboards a few seconds later while the vocals also bring in a great amount of death metal growls as well as some clean male and female vocals also being used at times and also gives the music a gothic feeling.
Clean playing can also be heard at times while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them along with the slow riffing being very heavily influenced by doom metal as well as some stringed instruments also being used at times, when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic style and the riffs also use a decent amount of melody and as the ep progresses a brief use of spoken word parts and an instrumental can be heard.
Adfail plays a musical style that takes goth, dark, doom and death metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and poetic themes.
In my opinion Adfail are a very great sounding mixture of goth, dark, doom and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "After Apostasy" and "Snow". 8 out of 10.
