May The Silence Fail are a band from Germany that plays a very melodic form of death metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "Of Hope And Aspiration" which was released by Supreme Chaos Records.
A very modern, heavy and melodic sound starts off the album along with some death metal growls and a few seconds later blast beats are added into certain sections of the recording and the band also uses a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as bringing in clean singing female vocals.
Metalcore and deathcore elements can be heard on a regular basis throughout the recording along with a great amount of melodic guitar leads and a perfect balance between both clean and heavy parts and as the album progresses the band adds in traces of the 90's and early 2000's melodic death metal sound in with their more modern musical influences.
As the album progresses violins and electronic music elements are added into some of the songs for a few seconds while one of the later tracks also shows acoustic guitars being added into the music while the music remains mostly in a very heavy direction that show s growls and clean singing alternating between each other.
May The Silence Fail plays a style of melodic death metal that takes the old school Gothenburg sound and mixes it in with the more modern variation of the genre as well as adding in a touch of metalcore into their sound, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion May The Silence Fail are a decent sounding melodic death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Gods Are Long Since Dead" "Nothing Left" "Without Knowing" and "When Time Is Asleep". 7/8 out of 10.
