Shades Of The Past are a band from Russia that plays deathcore and this is a review of their 2013 ep "Illusion Of Reality" which was released by Satanath Records.
Movie samples start off the ep before going into a very heavy musical direction that also utilizes a great amount of technical and melodic guitar leads and the riffs also use a great amount of melody and after awhile the music speeds up and adds in high pitched screams as well as a small amount of blast beats.
Death metal growls can also be heard quite a bit throughout the recording and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them while the mid tempo parts of the songs utilize a great amount of metalcore style breakdowns and one of the tracks also brings in a brief use of clean playing and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Shades Of The Past plays a style of deathcore that is very heavy while also being melodic at the same time, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and real life themes.
In my opinion Shades Of The Past are a very great sounding deathcore band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Shout" and "Illusion". 8 out of 10.
