The Fading are a band from Israel that plays a melodic form of death metal and this is a review of their self released 2015 album "Till Life Do Us Apart"/
Dark sounding synths start off the album along with a variety of many different sounding keys and after a few seconds melodic guitar leads start making their presence known and after the intro the music gets a lot more heavier along with a great amount of melody and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording.
When the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard along with the vocals also using a great amount of death metal growls and spoken word parts and modern metal elements can be heard in the music at times and there are also some clean singing vocals also being utilized at times.
The songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the songs also bring in a small amount of spoken words and back up shouts and some songs also bring in a small amount of clean playing and as the album progresses more atmospheric sounds can be heard and the songs also brings in a great amount of 90's Swedish influences along with some touches of thrash and there is also a brief use of clean guitars on one of the tracks.
The Fading plays a style of melodic death metal that is perfectly balanced between both the modern and old school sides of t he genre, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover inner struggles, humanity and society themes.
In my opinion The Fading are a very great sounding melodic death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "A Moment Of Insight" "Idol Of Wrath" "Blind Confession" and "The Art Of Suffering". 8 out of 10.
