Vesperia are a band from Ontario, Canada that plays a symphonic mixture of Celtic folk music and melodic blackened death metal and this is a review of their self released 2015 ep "The Inron Tempests".
A very atmospheric synth starts off the ep before evolving into more of an epic and symphonic style which also mixes in with a heavier sound a few seconds later along with blast beat smaking their presence on the recording and the vocals also use a great mixture of death metal growls and black metal screams.
At times the riffs can be very melodic and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and when clean playing and melodic singing are added into t he recording they add in more of a folk music feeling and the solos and leads also remain true to a very melodic style and on the second t racks choirs are used briefly and one of the tracks is long and epic in length and the last track is a metal solo version of ''Hall Of The Mountain King".
Vesperia plays a style of melodic blackened death metal that is very symphonic while also bring in a touch of folk music to create a style of their own, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover heroic, epic, nature and psychological states.
In my opinion Vesparia are a very great sounding mixture of symphonic blackened death and folk metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Iron Saga". 8 out of 10.
