Noumena are a band from Finland that has been featured before in this zine and plays a melodic form of death metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Myrrys" which will be released on April 28th by Haunted Zoo Productions.
Pianos and female vocals start off the album and after the intro the music goes into a heavier direction while also introducing melodic guitar leads onto the recording along with a great amount of death metal growls and the riffs also use a great amount of melody while all of the instruments sound very powerful.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and as the album progresses mandolins can be heard in certain sections of the recording and they also add in a touch of folk while female vocals also return on some of the later tracks and there is also a brief use of acoustic guitars on later tracks along with a couple of the songs being very long and epic in length.
Noumena creates another recording that remains true to the melodic death metal style that was established on previous releases while also standing out and being different than most bands of the genre, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics are written in Finnish and cover humanity's ability to destroy everything so vital and dear.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Noumena and if you are a fan of melodic death metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Metsan Viha" "Rohu" and "Syvalla Vedessa". 8 out of 10.
