Endemise are a band from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada that has been featured before in this zine and plays a symphonic mixture of black and death metal and this is a review of their self released 2016 album "Anathema".
Nature sounds and atmospheric synths start off the album and they also go into more of a symphonic direction that also mixes in with the heavier side of the songs and after awhile death metal growls and black metal screams make their presence known on the recording and the solos and leads are also very melodic.
When the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the riffs also use a great amount of melody while also mixing in the more melodic side of death metal and violins can also be heard in certain sections of the recording.
Endemise creates another recording that remains true to the symphonic mixture of black and death metal from their previous release, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Endemise and if you are a fan of symphonic black and death metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Anathema" "Soma" and "Fragments In Flame". 8 out of 10.
