Weeping Silence are a band from Malta that plays a mixture of gothic, doom and death metal and this is a review of their 2015 album "Opus IV Oblivion" which was released by Massacre Records.
Nature sounds start off the album along with some operatic female vocals a few seconds later which leads up to a more heavier and symphonic doom metal direction which has solos and leads bringing in more melodies along with some violins and orchestration and after awhile death metal growls make their presence known on the recording.
Classical guitars can be heard quite a bit throughout the recording along with some of the tracks being long and epic in length and spoken word parts can also be heard in certain sections of the recording and as the album progresses spoken word parts can be heard at times along with the music bringing in more elements of gothic metal and one track also brings in a brief use of blast beats while the music is mostly in a slow to mid paced musical direction.
Weeping Silence plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in an operatic style of gothic metal and they mix in the heaviness of doom and death metal to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover depression and nature themes.
In my opinion Weeping Silence are a very great sounding gothic/doom death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Ivy Thorns Above The Barrow" "In Exile" and "Gothic Epitaph". 8 out of 10.
