‘L’Endeví‘ the Spanish Goth/Rock Metal band is hitting up a storm with their latest album ‘An Eternity’ which is out now. With their heavy use of beautifully created effects in the intro to the song ‘Gold’ with the sythns creating a dreamscape atmosphere I can see why this band is making big impressions everywhere they go. Into the main section of the track and the music becomes very dark with very expressive punk-esq vocals driving this piece of madness alongside the chops of the guitars. The song flows to and fro between gentle sections and heavy passages whilst remaining technically intricate and highly hypnotising if not enticing to the listener. As you move into ‘Red ivy’ the vocals seem to get more and more aggressive and powerful beyond anything else, with the backing screams and growls mixed with the effects is simply haunting. Powerful music with heavy guitars, powerful drums, and yet the ending was pitiful; however the song had some really great features to it.
As you progress through the tracks you’ll eventually get to the really expressive ‘Slug’ with the fantastic use of leading melody lines to keeps this piece of music flowing constantly throughout.
Into ‘Silent enemy’ which is just simply beautiful in every sense of the word, with the gentle use of vocals and orchestral compositions from the string sections with the clean guitars leading all the way. As the track progresses and the beat kicks in, the vocals keep to a gentle yet affirmative sense. The music slowly gets heavier with some really clever layering and sequences taking you into an entirely different aspect, whilst increasing your view on everything else.
From a heavy madness to super-rich clean passages and the most enticing vocals ever to be placed in a single setting, this album encapsulates all the elements of a really great album and as you leave the last track with a final clarity from ‘The maze’ you can see why I played the whole thing again.
