Abandoned Dreams are a band from Germany that plays an atmospheric and blackened form of doom metal and this is a review of their self released 2015 ep "Home".
Drum beats start off the ep along with some bass guitars and atmospheric elements a few seconds later and the clean playing also brings in a touch of post rock and after awhile the music starts getting heavier and also adds in melodic vocals and you can also hear elements of black metal in the guitar riffing.
All of the tracks are very long and epic in length and go for mostly a doom metal style and the solos and leads also remain true to a melodic and depressive style of metal and the songs also mix in a great amount of doom rock elements and all of the songs stick a very slow musical direction and after awhile a brief use of black metal screams are added into the music.
Abandoned Dreams plays a style of doom metal that is very melodic and atmospheric and also mixes in a great amount of post rock and black metal elements to create a sound of t heir own, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover nature and despair themes.
In my opinion Abandoned Dreams are a very great sounding atmospheric blackened doom metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Embrace". 8 out of 10.
