Avernus - _A Farewell to Eden_
by: Adam Wasylyk (5 out of 5)
Unbelievable! Not only for the music, but for the fact that these guys are actually unsigned!! Their appearance at the Milwaukee Metalfest amazed me, and their four-song demo, _A Farewell to Eden_, definitely lived up to my expectations, and more. Starting off with the tribal sounding title track, I found myself struggling to come up with words to describe their sound. There's as I mentioned before a tribal element in the music (using instruments like tambourines and African drums) which is a predominant factor in a couple of the tracks. Perhaps slow, melodic metal? Efficient keyboarding is one strength of the band which is very emotional sounding, another is the male and female singing which accentuates the music beautifully. Not one single complaint here (including production-wise), this is one of the best demo's I've ever heard. Record companies please take note!
