Walter Fornication is a solo artist from the Netherlands that plays an experimental form of melodic death metal and this is a review of his self released 2017 album "On A Journey Through Time And Space".
Sci fi orientated synths start off the album and after the intro grim growls are added onto the recording which also leads up to a heavier musical direction along with the vocals also going into more of a death metal direction while the solos and leads are done in a very melodic fashion.
A great amount of melody can also be heard in the guitar riffing while screams are also utilized at times and they also add in a touch of black metal along with the keyboards also adding in experimental, ambient, and avant garde elements as well as all of the musical instruments also having a very powerful sound to them and as the album progresses a brief use of clean guitars and spoken word parts can be heard, blast beats can lao be heard briefly when the music finally speeds up.
Walter Fornication plays a style of melodic death metal that is very original, experimental and avant garde sounding while also adding in a touch of black metal, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover cyberpunk, English literature, history, politics and social/societal criticism.
In my opinion Walter Fornication are a very great sounding experimental and melodic death metal solo project and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "This Perfect Day" "Assassin" "History Misanthropy" and "The Universe Is A Mystery". 8 out of 10.
