The GARDNERZ (Sweden) “It All Fades” CD EP review


By Xavier Bergada

So glad, a scant year since he jumped into the ring with his acclaimed debut album, THE GARDNERZ Swedes seem not waste time. This time we get to “It All Fades” EP of five tracks DARKTHRONE own version included more we serve as a bridge for their next studio album.

Without losing the essence of his previous feature “The System Of Nature” the compositions of these Swedes they might break the mold. His proposal somewhere between Doom and Death more cavernous still dominates the highest tonnage of your balance, that if less overweight than before and with more variety added to the base style.

From the initial “Do not Look Back” these guys go to the strip, his is dizzy both genders as if to break the issues into two is involved and know it a long time. The hearth is cited linked with many new concerns, with nods to Death of a more technical / progressive pace out there overlook something melodic clean some records and rarely visited before, as in the cuator minutes covering “Melatonin” predominance dotted interludes (the end with “A Horrible Disease” this logradísma) any registration shy of the opposite sex and even epic choruses amid “Eracing Bad Specimen”.

The curious note comes with the version that is indecipherable Darkthrone Cascan man and VULCANO WINTER those of his previous work, at least respect the essence and sweeping it ran to home, but this, you do not know where to get it. The theme is none other than the “Transilvanian Hunger” but I assure you that not even recognize such daring Fenriz. One version (to call it somehow) that goes with half clean guitar / acoustic whose theme is only a female voice dye mortuary, not a very rare thing and innovative accordance with eyes that look, although you I say there is no connection anywhere.

It is clear that THE GARDNERZ not satisfied with business as usual and try to distance themselves from the common logic of gender patterns. No me some credit if passed by former Tristitia Wilhelm Lindh, although I will not deny that his colorful rhythmic different extra cedes more and more recognizable musical takeoff. The most commendable thing is that pulling something invented and are carving out a unique musical personality and even quite easy to associate THE GARDNERZ, because apparently not resemble anyone and that in this day and age is a real advantage.

So, if you strip the Doom / Death with his particular line perfectly divided and with a few extras that make the difference, THE GARDNERZ you served in tray.
