Enshine is a Sweden/France project, formed by Jari Lindholm (ex.Slumber) on guitar, and Sebastien Pierre (Cold Insight , Fractal Gates) on vocals.This band/project play atmospheric death/doom metal with gothic metal influences.I tell you right from the start : This album is a superb material , and I’m not joking.You MUST listen this album ! Trust me. I liked this album from the very first listening.Is a combination of old school with some new stuff.The new stuff is more in the sound and production department, which are just flawless and fits perfectly with this type of music.Instrumental parts are bright and atmospheric taking you to beautiful unknown worlds. Brilliant !Moreover, this album contains three instrumental songs which add a Pink Floyd vibe, especially the song “Astrarium”.
Vocals are very good too. I like the growl vocal style more than the clean vocals, because, in my opinion, growls vocals fits better with this album atmosphere.That does not mean that the clean ones are not good. Not at all. Maybe is just my taste.
Final song is an instrumental song, that closes this superb debut album.Oh, I forgot to tell you that this is a debut album. Cool to start from this level, right?
I only hope they continue to this path in the future, and I can not wait for the next release.Try it and you will not regret it!
