Crescent Moon are a band from Switzerland that plays a very melodic and symphonic form of death metal and this is a review of their self released 2013 ep "Captured".
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with not much in the way of blast beats, while the synths bring a very dark, atmospheric and symphonic sound to the recording, as for the bass playing it has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast melodic death metal riffs that are very dark and melodic sounding, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding death metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals range from deep death metal growls to high pitched screams as well as a brief use of pig squeels, while the lyrics cover dark themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound for being a self released recording.
In my opinion Crescent Moon are a very great sounding melodic and symphonic death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Mother Earth". RECOMMENDED BUY.
