The Advent Equation are a band from Mexico that has been featured before in this zine and on this recording plays a very progressive and melodic form of metal with some touches of black and death metal and this is a review of their self released 2020 album "Remnants Of Oblivion" which will be released on December 4th.
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the album while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them. Progressive rock style synths are also added into some parts of the recording along with the solos and leads also being done in a very melodic style and the riffs and solos also add in a great amount of prog metal elements.
A great portion of the tracks are also very long and epic in length while melodic vocals are also a very huge part of the recording. The riffs also add in a great amount of melody along with the music sticking mostly to either a slow or mid tempo direction as well as one of the tracks also introducing death metal growls onto the recording, acoustic guitars are also added on some of the songs.
On this recording the Advent Equation focuses less on the black and death metal elements that where a very huge part of their previous release and goes into more of a progressive metal direction. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and philosophical themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from The Advent Equation and if you are a fan of progressive metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Patterns Of Spiraling Reality" "An Eternal Moment" and "The Creation Part II: Thanatos". 8 out of 10.
