From The Shores are a band from Italy that plays a melodic mixture of black, death metal and metalcore and this is a review of their 2016 album "Of Apathy" which was released by Metal Scrap Records.
A very fast, heavy and melodic sound starts off the album along with a decent amount of blast beats and after awhile the brutality of death metal can be heard and after the intro growling vocals are added onto the recording along with some black metal screams also being utilized in some parts of the songs.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the solos and leads stick to a very melodic style and some of the riffing also brings in a decent amount of tremolo picking and metalcore influences can also be heard at times while the death and black metal influence has more dominance.
As the album progresses clean playing is added onto the album along with thunder sounds also being added onto a couple of the tracks and their is also a brief use of synths along with an instrumental before reverting back to vocals and the last track is very long and epic in length and also mixes in a few seconds of stringed instruments.
From The Shores plays a musical style that takes melodic black metal and mixes it with death metal and a touch of metalcore to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover pain and death themes.
In my opinion From The Shores are a very great sounding mixture of melodic black, death metal and metalcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "This Ain't Another Feast For Crows" "Incest Of The Wretched" "Hourglass" and "Weakness Of The Flesh". 8 out of 10.
