Orchid Vision's are a band from Costa Rica that plays a mixture of symphonic, black, gothic and heavy metal and this is a review of their self released 2011 ep "Dante's Inferno".
Drums range from slow to mid paced playing with no fast drumming or blast beats being present on this recording, while the keyboards bring a very dark, atmospheric, symphonic and gothic sound to the recording, as for the bass playing it has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars and at times they have a very powerful sound to t hem.
Rhythm guitars range from slow to mid paced tiffs that combine melodic black metal, gothic and traditional metal together to create a sound of their own, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding heavy metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals range from clean singing female vocals, deep death metal growls and high pitched black metal s creams, while the lyrics are a concept album based on Dante's Inferno, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and dark sound to it with the last 3 songs being recorded live and you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Orchid Vision's are a very great sounding hybrid of symphonic, black, gothic, and heavy metal and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Dante's Inferno" "Red Moon" and "Archangel". RECOMMENDED BUY.
