Wait! Memories Are Fading Away are a band from Germany that plays a mixture of blackgaze, crust and post hardcore and this is a review of t heir 2023 album "Collapsing Our Way To Snowcloaked Mountaincrests" which will be released in march as a joint effort between Fiadh Productions and Vita Destestablis Records.
Field recordings start off the album along with some synths a few seconds later which also mixes in with the heavier sections of the songs at times. Shoegaze and post rock style clean playing can also be heard in certain sections of the recording and when the music speeds ups a decent amount of blast beats can b e heard.
Tremolo picking can also be heard in some of the faster riffing while the music also mixes in a great amount of melodic post hardcore elements. Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams along with all of the musical instruments on the recording also having a very powerful sound to them.
Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with the solos and leads also being done in a very melodic style as well as a couple of the tracks also being instrumentals, growls can also be heard at times and spoken word parts can also be heard briefly. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover desolation and the lack of expectation.
In my opinion Wait! memories Are Fading Away are a very great sounding mixture of blackgaze, crust and post hardcore and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Wandering Towards new Beginnings" "Eclipse on A n Icecold Winternight" and "Okay, But Whos Goodbye Is It Really!". 8 out of 10.
