A Bare Reminiscence Of Infected Wonderlands
Review by JD on May 31, 2010.
Italian metallists in general are right now some of the best in the world for doing the art of extreme metal...and by far one of most unknown of them is a band called Eloa Vadaath. They truly are visionary to say the least, as this is not your normal metal by any stretch of the imagination.
Combining a myriad of styles from a near Cradle Of Filth style of heaviness that hits you squarely to a near Dragonforce styled musical mastery that add some pretty and effecting classical music to back everything and make the atmosphere complete... these five are by far some of the best musicians in both playing and their own intriguing vision of utter destruction while having almost a near ‘catchiness’ to every musical idea.
With sweeping classical violins to piano lines that all seem to really help build up the brutal and nailing heavy guitars that soar through incredible and masterful production... Eloa Vadaath construct music that is accessibly heavy yet has this air of brilliant artistry that only comes from bands that are truly cut from a different sort of cloth than the hopeless mainstream metallic attack.
If you are fans of music that is extensively heavy, musically very progressive and is a little beyond the term of normal.. Eloa Vadaath will quench your musical needs like a cold beer on a very hot day. An album that is that perfect sort of addition for metalheads that are a little more than simply eclectic, because they are also still needing their musical fix to be really
damned heavy as well.
