Cranely Gardens are a band from New Jersey that plays deathcore with elements of thrash, death, black, nu metal and metalcore and this is a review of their self released 2017 ep "House OF Decay".
Radio and horror movie samples start off the ep before going into a heavier direction along with some vocals that add in death metal growls and the more aggressive side of thrash while the riffs also mix in a great amount of melody and metalcore elements along with a touch of nu metal.
When the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats can be heard while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast pats along with the solos and leads being done in a very melodic and technical fashion and the music also incorporates elements from the more melodic side of black metal and clean playing is added onto the closing track.
Cranely Gardens plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in the melodic side of deathcore while also mixing in some metalcore, thrash, death, black and nu metal elements to create something very original, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark and philosophical themes.
In my opinion Cranely Gardens are a very decent sounding deathcore band with elements of thrash, death, black, nu metal and metalcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Muswell Hill" "Savages" and "The Challenger". 7/5 out of 10.
