Bloody Wings : Demo

This is the demo effort of this Italian band. Bloody Wings bring mid-paced doom/death with keyboards.

They do not make the mistake of trying to sound too much like an existing band and while the music is easily linked to others in the doom/death genre, it does not give the impression of being a mere copy. That said, the song structures are very simplistic. There is very little variation in rhythm and riffing style and this makes the songs less interesting than they could have been. The melodies are quite atmospheric however, and they could work out well if a little more attention was paid to the songwriting.

The production is fine for a demo, but the mixing for the guitars is a little off, which gives the whole thing a rather 'light' feel. If this band invests more work into their work, they could come up with a very decent demo in the near future. At this point, however, it is far below the mark.
