Meadows End – Sojourn

Meadows_End-Sojourn

 

Orchestration and keyboards in metal, especially extreme metal, will continue to be one of the genre’s most polarizing issues. When done well, the combination of choirs, orchestras, and pianos can enhance the power of the underlying song structures and take it from merely solid to way beyond epic. When not done well or over-emphasized, though, keyboards are tantamount to ruining a perfectly good steak by drowning it in nacho cheese. Fortunately, symphonic melodic death metal veterans Meadows End are masters of their trade, and their newest album Sojourn is yet another strong display of brawn and beauty as partners in tango.
