Mellevon are a band from Montreal, Quebec, Canada that plays a mixture of industrial and melodic death metal and this is a review of their self released 2014 album "Solace".
Atmospheric sounding synths start off the album along with some programmed beats and they also mix in the heavy guitars in with the synth parts as well as utilizing a great amount of melodic guitar leads throughout the recording and the riffs also use a great amount of melody and when vocals are added into t he music they are death metal growls.
Elements of modern metal can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording along with high pitched screams being added into some parts of the tracks and you can also hear a lot of clean singing female vocals throughout the recording and as the album progresses more elements of industrial and electronic music are added onto the recording.
Clean singing male vocals along with spoken word parts can be heard on some of the tracks while some of the high pitched screams also bring in a black metal influence at times while some of the later songs uses clean playing before making a return back to a heavier direction and the synths also get more symphonic on the later tracks while one song brings in annoying nu metal style raps which are only used for a few seconds.
Mellovon takes a melodic style of melodic death metal and mixes it with industrial and symphonic music as well as adding in a touch of black and nu metal to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion Mellevon are a very great sounding mixture of melodic death metal and industrial and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Mists Of April" "Fracture" "Left behind" and "The Quiet Light". 8 out of 10.
