The GARDNERZ (Sweden) “The System of Nature” DIGI CD review

by Pest Webzine

By Adrian

The gardnerz seems to be a South American band actually, two of is members being from Chile, one from Mexico and only one from Sweden, but I guess they have relocated to Sweden. The Mexican guy namely Wilhelm Lindh was (is?) also a member of the Death Metal legends Toxodeth, everyone should know who Toxodeth is. “The System of Nature” is The Gardnerz’ debut album, a 12 tracks effort lasting for exactly an hour, a melodic, heavy and dark Doom Death Metal a la’ ’90’s that honestly made me think of early Amorphis, and that’s because of the “oriental” approach on guitar leads. The guitar riffs unfortunately are getting too repetitive at times and that gets monotonous, and if you add the mono-tone raspy vocals of Niclas (good vocals, but not varied enough) this drags down the release, but still all in all I have enjoyed it, especially the guitar leads and bass lines. Recommended to old Amorphis followers. The Progressive Death Metal elements that are thrown in here and there only show that these guys have a lot more potential than they show on this release.
