Review: The Fading - Till Life Do Us Part

Looking for some Gothenburg-style melodic death metal? Then look no further than… Israel, where The Fading are from. “Till life do us part” is their second full-length, and was released on the 29th of December last year.

Starting with a rather mellow, slightly futuristic intro, it’s only the second track “A moment of insight” which unleashes the beast. The track is marked by melodic passages and powerful screams. This can be said for the remainder of 10 songs as well. Great work overall, every song polished up to highest standard due to a great musicianship, but surely also due to an awesome job done mixing and mastering by Jens Borgren (Dark Tranquillity, Amon Amarth, Soilwork). The songs, as said, have the typical Gothenburg-style (in the best sense) - a strong mix between clean vocals and growls as well as very catchy passages. Every song starts off a bit differently, but overall The Fading keep a very consistent style, which reminds and is definitely influenced by the early Omnium Gatherum. The downside of this consistency is the lack of diversity to make it a truly capturing album.

Nevertheless, “Till life do us part” is an easy listen with great passages and melodies. Give it a shot! 8/10.
