Fading Azalea are a duo from Sweden that plays a symphonic mixture of black and melodic death metal and this is a review of t heir self released 2017 album "Maze Of Melancholy".
Classical style keyboards and stringed instruments start off the album along with some symphonic moments a few seconds later and they also mix it in with the heavier side of the music and there are also a great amount of blast beats during the faster sections of the songs while the vocals bring in a mixture of death metal growls and black metal screams.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the solos and leads are done in a very melodic fashion along with the riffs also bringing in a great amount of melody and the songs also mix in a great amount operatic female vocals which also adds in a touch of goth metal and some tracks also bring in a small amount of acoustic guitars and some of the songs are very long and epic in length.
Fading Azalea plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in symphonic metal while also mixing in the heaviness of black and melodic death metal to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark and poetic themes.
In my opinion Fading Azalea are a very great sounding mixture of symphonic, black and melodic death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "In The Name Of Justice" "Surface" "Fall Of the Mask" and "Where I Belong". 8 out of 10.
