Fading Bliss are a band from Belgium that plays a mixture of gothic and atmospheric doom/death metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "Journeys Into Solitude" which was released by Malpermesita.
Melodic guitar leads start off the album while clean goth vocals are also used quite a bit throughout the recording along with a brief use of spoken word parts as well as a great amount of death metal growls and the music also utilizes a great amount of atmospheric sounding synths.
A great amount of 90's doom/death and goth metal influences can be heard in the music while clean playing is also utilized at times along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and the songs also add female vocals into certain sections of the music.
All of the tracks are very long and epic in length while one of the songs also introduces acoustic guitars onto the recording along with the riffing also bringing in a great amount of depressive sounding melodies, they also bring in a cover of The Cure's "Forest" and all of the songs stick to a very slow direction.
Fading Bliss plays a musical style that takes 90's era atmospheric doom/death metal and mixes it with gothic metal to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover solitude, despair, melancholy, and self discovery themes.
In my opinion Fading Bliss are a very great sounding mixture of gothic and atmospheric doom/death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Ocean' and "Forest". 8 out of 10.
