Dark Salvation are a band from Germany that plays a melodic form of death metal and this is a review of their self released 2013 "Der letze Weg".
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being utilized at times, while the bass playing it has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars and at times they have a very powerful sound to them, as for the synths which are only used briefly they bring an atmospheric and experimental feeling to the music.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast melodic death metal riffs in the mid 90's tradition while also mixing in traditional death metal influences, while the lead guitars are very melodic death metal guitar solos and leads, as for the acoustic guitars when they are utilized they use finger picking to add some darkness to the music.
Vocals are mostly deep death metal growls with some high pitched screams, while the lyrics cover dark themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound to it.
In my opinion Dark Salvation are a very great sounding melodic death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Tranenmeer" "Lauf der Zeit" "Sekunden meiner Macht" and "Endzeit". RECOMMENDED BUY.
