After Apocalypse-After Apocalypse


Formed in the summer of 2014 by lead vocalist/opera singer Elena, rhythm guitarist Seba, and clarinetist/backing vocalist Varghar, After Apocalypse is a Brescia-based symphonic metal band with one album to it's name thanks to this 10-track, self-titled affair. A six-piece band, After Apocalypse is rounded out by Zendra (guitar), Megres (bass), and Al (drums) with the aforementioned Varghar contributing harsh/growl vocals to the mix. Said growls offer a nice alternative to Elena's clean voice with this young Italian act's symphonic-style often times filled out by other metal subcategories such as goth, doom, and blackened death (mostly by way of Varghar's bleak vocals). Recorded, mixed, and mastered by Oscar Burato at Atomic Stuff Studio, "After Apocalypse" works well as a debut album in that it establishes a solid foundation while also showcasing the full-potential of this six-piece act. With high-points awarded for it's production, overall musicianship, atmospheric vibe, and the nice interplay of it's two vocalists, "After Apocalypse" should easily appeal to fans of Gothic-tinged symphonic and classically-infused metal.
