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


By Childeric Thor

After birth two years ago first album little charm holder crafts, book with The Gardnerz It All Fades not the successor of The System Of Nature but a simple EP, format unjustly neglected as otherwise unloved often synonymous little thing acting as filler. A wrong. At their extent, modest show the Swedes.

On the one hand by crossing to It All Fades the 30 minutes duration, recall, some “real” disks do not exceed or even slightly and secondly because of the quality of a certain menu with six titles are enough to bring the perpetrators of a sympathetic ear.

Happily, The Gardnerz restores Death / Doom Series B 90s with this song cavernous grater, these guitars numbed desolation and the sound pickup without affectations. By cons, if you hope to detect in him any trace of its geographical origin including the Swedish-grain, you will charge for your car, except the good old school video of Daniel “Devilish” Johnsson, nothing really helps to identify the nationality of It All Fades whose surprising South American roots (mixing achieved in Santiago and Chilean presence of a bassist) regarding flush them more nearly to the surface.

This is not the only surprise of this test. One of them and not the least being the curious reading of the “Transilvanian Hunger” by Darkthrone, transformed into acoustic ballad vocal lines that caress women and for once frankly unrecognizable. It is a success. Heavy and rocky, the other five tracks are dotted with attractive shaped (“Do not Look Back”, “A Terrible Desease”) qu’irriguent riffs turn into rock or petrified vectors melodies full of subtlety astonishing.

Damage, however, that the song Niclas Ankarbranth never leaves the beaten track and the whole lack of power if large, only flats that still encumber in any way the pleasure one feels when discovering this little group, which will no doubt … This should not prevent fans Doom Death to the old cast a sympathetic ear to this offering.
