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

by Johnny Strömbäck

By Johnny Strömbäck

Malmo Bands monitors fjolärets debut works with a six sounds long ep. Initial “Do not look back” is  a dynamic piece of just over seven minutes that offers alit from fast-DEATH reminding guitar scales  and melodic plug into leaden verses with death growls and clean vocals. It is a complex song that  grows with each listening. Hair in the borderland between doom metal and progressive death metal  has Scanians upperbarligen found their niche.

The second exclamation mark is a cover of DARK THRONE’S “Transilvanian hunger” –  arrangement where Paulina Strihavkas lonely voice accompanied by clean electric guitar is as  beautiful as it is clever. After the rousing “Erasing bad specimen” rounded the album in an excellent  way, I note that I Vil hear more of THE GARDNERZ in the future.

Malmöband som följer upp fjolärets debutalster med en sex låter lång ep. Inledande “Don’t look  back” är ett dynamiskt stycke på drygt sju minuter som bjuder på alit från snabba DEATH-minnande  gitarrskalor och melodiska instick till blytunga verser med deathgrowl och ren sång. Det är en  komplex låt som våxer med varje lyssning. Hår i gränslandet mellan doom metal och progressiv  death metal har skåningarna upperbarligen hittat sin nisch.

Det andra utropstecknet är en cover på DARKTHRONE’S “Transilvanian hunger” – arrangemanget  där Paulina Strihavkas ensamma stämma ackompanjeras av ren elgitarr är lika vackert som genialt.  Efter att den medryckande “Erasing bad specimen” avrundat albumet på ett utmärkt sätt  konstaterar jag att jag vil höra mer av THE GARDNERZ i framtiden.
