The Advent Equation are a band from Monterrey, Mexico that plays a very progressive from of melodic black/death metal and this is a review of their self released 2012 album "Limitless Life Reflection".
Drums range from slow to mid paced drumming with no fast playing a blast beats being present on this recording, while the keyboards bring a very dark, atmospheric and progressive sound to the music, as for the bass playing it has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing t hat is coming out of the guitars and at times they have a very powerful sound to t hem.
Rhythm guitars range from slow to mid paced riffs that combine melodic black metal, doom and death metal with progressive rock to create a sound of their own, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding guitar solos and leads, as for the acoustic guitars when they are utilized they use full chords and finger picking to enhance the progressive sound of the music.
Vocals range from clean singing to deep blackened death metal growls as well as a brief use of female vocals, while the lyrics cover dark and depressing themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, and heavy sound for being a self released recording where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording along with a good amount of the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion The Advent Equation are a very great sounding melodic, progressive black/death metal and if you are a fan of this musical style, you should check out t his recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "On Darkness" "Visions Of Pain" and "Hopeless". RECOMMENDED BUY.
