GARDENJIA “Epo”

GARDENJIA
”Epo”
(Memorial)
Just from looking at the digipak I get a feeling that this is going to be something dreamlike and esoteric. I wasn’t too far off. This isn’t your direct in-the-face death metal assault. Instead it is more like a gentle trip through a harsh landscape. Carefully maneuvering so that you don’t cut yourself on any spikey bushes. Musically I have no idea where to place them. An Avant-garde version of Tool might be sufficient but that doesn’t really feel appropriate. A death metal version of Mr Bungle doesn’t really sit that comfortable either. Let’s just settle for that this album moves over a wide array of metal genres. And it isn’t as bad as it might seem on paper. There is a flow to it that makes it an easy listening (without being remotely close to easy listening). Anders Ekdahl
