In Thousand Lakes are a band from Spain that plays a melodic form of death metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Age Of Decay" which was released by Xtreem Music.
A very heavy yet melodic sound starts off the album along with some death metal growls and screams a few seconds later and the music is very heavily rooted in the 90's Swedish tradition and you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and when the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic fashion and you can also hear an influence of traditional metal at times and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and all of the songs sound like they could of easily been recorded and released 20 years ago and as the album progresses melodic vocals can also be heard briefly. and later tracks also brings in a brief use of clean guitars and synths while the main focus is on a heavier style
In Thousand Lakes plays a style of melodic death metal that is very heavily rooted in the 90's Swedish tradition, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and real life themes.
In my opinion In Thousand Lakes are a very great sounding melodic death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Death train" "Age Of Decay" "Ethereal" and "4 Walls (Scars)". 8 out of 10.
