The Ward are a band from Moldova that plays a very atmospheric and melodic form of death metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Part Of Humanity" which was released by Metal Scrap Records.
Symphonic synths start off the album and after the intro the music gets more heavy along with some death metal growls and melodic riffs while also mixing in the atmospheric elements that where present on the intro and when the music speeds up a great amount of brutal blast beats can be heard.
Throughout the recording there is a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they bring of a technical death metal style to the bands musical style and some songs also bring in a small amount of clean playing and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the album and the music can also be very progressive in some parts of the songs and they also bring in one track that is very long and epic in length while one track also adds in a brief use of female vocals.
The Ward plays a style of death metal that takes the melodic, symphonic, technical and atmospheric sides of the genre and mixes them together to create a style of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark themes.
In my opinion The Ward are a very great sounding atmospheric, melodic death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Megiddo" "Death Monastery" "In the Depths Of Theories" and "Flakes Of Rapture". 8 out of 10.
