Meadow's End are a band from Sweden that has been featured before in this zine and plays a symphonic form of melodic death metal and this is a review of their self released 2016 album "Sojourn".
A very dark, melodic and symphonic sound starts off the album along with some blast beats and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and after awhile death metal growls make their presence known on the recording while whispers can also be heard in certain sections of the recording.
Throughout the recording there is a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and after awhile screams can also be heard in some parts of the tracks and the solos and leads the band uses also remain true to a very melodic style of metal and some songs also bring in a small amount of spoken word parts while later tracks also add in acoustic guitars which also gives the music more of a progressive edge as well as a brief use of violins and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length and towards the end some of the songs start bringing in a small amount of melodic choir vocals.
Meadow's End creates another melodic death metal recording t hat is still very symphonic while also getting a bit more progressive this time as well as adding in new elements to their musical style, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover depression and death themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Meadow's End and if you are a fan of symphonic and melodic death metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Remnant's" "Soulslain" "All Of Them" and "Forever Haven". 8 out of 10.
