Hell's Guardian are a band from Italy that has been featured before in this zine and plays a very epic and melodic form of death metal and this is a review of their 2015 ep "Ex Adversis Resurgo" which was released by Record Union.
Fire burning sounds start off the ep along with some acoustic guitars and atmospheric elements which also sets up the mood for melodic guitar leads to kick in and after the intro the music goes into a heavier musical direction and also introduces death metal growls onto the recording and the music also gets symphonic at times.
High pitched screams can be heard in some parts of the songs and the music also gets symphonic at times and you can hear elements of folk in the bands musical style and as the ep progresses clean singing can be heard at times and the acoustic guitars also make a return on a few songs and they also bring in a few live tracks and they close the recording with a piano track that also bring in female vocals.
Hell's Guardian creates another recording that remains true to the epic and melodic style of death metal that was established on the previous recording, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding from Hell's Guardian and if you are a fan of melodic death metal, you should check out this ep. RE$COMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Fire Of Persecution" and "Cradle's Lake". 8 out of 10.
