Everdying are a band from Illinois that plays a melodic and brutal mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their self released 2009 ep "December's Rainy Day".
A very dark and heavy melodic black metal sound starts off the ep and a few seconds later blast beats and death metal growls are added into the music along with some black metal screams being mixed in a few minutes later along with some melodic guitar leads and on the following track acoustic guitars are added into certain sections of the recording giving the ep a more progressive feeling.
After the acoustic instrumental the band go into a more melodic 90's style Swedish death metal sound while also using some blast beats along with a mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and they also keep around the acoustic guitars in certain sections as well as using them on the following songs and the following track sees more elements of black metal along with the blast beats getting more brutal while death metal is still a huge part of the bands musical sound and they bring this mixture on the later t racks as well.
Everdying create a very interesting sound taking the melodic styles of black and death metal from Sweden and adding in a touch of American brutality to create their own musical style, the production has a very dark and heavy sound while the lyrics cover dark and real life themes.
In my opinion Everdying are a very great sounding melodic and brutal mixture of black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "December" and "Lunar Aura". 8 out of 10.
