Grey Skies Fallen are a band from New York that h as had music reviewed before in this zine and plays a melodic and progressive mixture of black, doom and death metal and this is a review of their album "Cold Dead lands" which will be self released in 2020.
A very slow, dark and heavy doom metal sound starts off the album while most of the tracks are very long and epic in length. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very melodic style along with some clean playing also being added into some parts of the recording.
All of the musical instruments on the recording also have a very powerful sound to them while the riffs also add in a great amount of melody. Black metal screams and death metal growls are utilized utilized quite a bit throughout the album and a couple of tracks also adds in a small amount of acoustic guitars, at times the music also gets very progressive sounding and all of the songs also stick to a slower musical direction.
On this recording Grey Skies Fallen goes for more of an epic style of doom metal while still mixing in some elements of progressive, melodic black and death metal. The production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover despair and bleakness themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Grey Skies Fallen and if you are a fan of melodic and progressive black, doom and death metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Cold Dead Lands" and "After The Summer Comes To Fall". 8 out of 10.
