Waldensis are a band from Switzerland that plays a melodic mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their 2016 ep "Skies Of Deception" which was released by Sepulchral Silence Records.
Night sounds start off the ep along with some acoustic guitars and atmospheric synths a few seconds later before going into a heavier direction which also introduces melodic guitar leads onto the recording and after awhile the music goes into a faster direction which also utilizes a great amount of blast beats.
Both t he symphonic and heavy parts get mixed together at times while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the riffs also use a great amount of tremolo picking and melodies and a couple of the tracks are very long and epic in length and all of the tracks are instrumental while also bringing in a perfect balance between black and death metal elements.
Waldensis plays a musical style that takes the more melodic sides of black and death metal and mixes them together without any vocals or songwriting while also adding in some symphonic touches to create a sound of their own and the production also sounds very professional.
In my opinion Waldensis are a very great sounding melodic and instrumental 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 "Unfounded Hope" and "Skies Of Deception". 8 out of 10.
