a1687569467_16 Two years after forming Fate Weaver recently released their self titled EP. This self titled EP features four songs that are played in the vein of melodic death metal. Even though the EP is short that doesn’t mean that it lacks content. The songs are fairly long, and within each song Fate Weaver gives you different looks into their style of death metal. From the very beginning of the EP, Fate Weaver gives you plenty of variety as no song sounds the same.

There are instances where you get galloping death metal one moment and the next is a nice melodious piece, or you will experience a slower more melodic sound like in the second song Horror. Being slower and more atmospheric and melodic doesn’t mean the music doesn’t shred you like a typical blazing death metal onslaught does, it just means that it shreds you in a different manner. For the slower more meticulous songs such as Horror and even the one that comes after titled The Hate Within they still have that power that the blistering songs do as they have blasts, double bass, romping riffs and accosting vocals still, but it is more plotted out than a flesh flaying, fret bursting song.

With all of that being said, Fate Weaver takes melodic death metal an extra step. Other than being just melodious they are also atmospheric. The atmosphere that you feel is from the almost melancholic way that they play.

Death metal generally makes you feel anger, hate and any pent up aggression that you feel, but Fate Weaver makes you feel other emotions as well. They tap into those suppressed feelings with great song writing and song construction. As stated above, one moment you will be listening to heavy hitting death metal, and the next is a great melodic piece that mellows you out. And even during the softer melodious moments you still end up feeling the need to headbang and let loose.

Fate Weaver found a great balance between destructive death and thought provoking melodies. The riffs are sharp, the drums pummel and blast their way through your skull, the bass is smooth and rhythmic and the vocals transition effortlessly between a black metal gravely scream to a deep unearthly growl.

With everything that is packed within this short four track EP, it can only make you want more. Fate Weaver is smooth, creating great soundscapes and thought provoking music leading you to press play over and over again.
