Negative Voice are a band from Russia that plays a very melodic and mid tempo form of black/death metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Infinite Dissonance" which was released by Inverse Records.
The album starts out with a very dark sound bordering on classical and after a minute the music goes into a more heavy and melodic direction along with grim black metal vocals as well as bringing in guitar leads and you can also hear elements of doom metal in the music.
The band also bring this approach to other songs as well and the vocals also get deeper in certain sections of the recording as well as adding in a great amount of death metal elements to the music and after awhile clean vocals and spoken word parts are brought in on certain tracks and the album ends with a small amount of acoustic gutiars.
With this album negative Voice bring a very different sound to melodic black/death metal, keeping everything mid tempo along with traces of doom metal and it has a more original feeling than most bands of this genre.
Song lyrics cover dark, depressive and philosophical themes, while the production h as a very strong, powerful, heavy, dark along with the bass guitars being mixed down low in the mix as well as some of the songs being very long and epic in length.
In my opinion Negative Voice are a very great sounding melodic, mid tempo black/death metal b and and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Grey Pools Heaven" "Into Oblivion" and "Rejection". 8 out of 10.
