Roses Never Fade are a band from the United States with members of integrity, Ancient Vvisdom, The Way to Light, and Pale Creation that plays dark gothic acoustic neo folk and this is a review of their 2014 album "Devil Dust" which was released by Neuropa.
Dark sounding drones start off the album along with some elements of ambient and spoken word samples and on the second tracks acoustic guitars which use both finger picking and full chords become a huge part of the music along with some spoken word style singing and you can also hear some melodic chants being used in the background at times.
After awhile the vocals start adding in clean singing and you can also hear a little bit of old country in the bands musical style and the band manages to keep a very dark, haunting and depressive atmosphere throughout the recording and every track has a very different sound to it while you can still tell it is the same band on all of them as well as some of the songs bringing in a small amount of whispers which also adds a more black metal feeling to the bands acoustic folk style.
Roses Never Fade creates a very dark and haunting acoustic, gothic neo folk sound with their musical style and all of the music has a very depressive sound to it, the production sound s very dark while the lyrics cover dark, depressive and melancholic themes.
In my opinion Roses Never Fade are a very great sounding dark, acoustic, gothic neo-folk band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Vanishing Twilight" "Hope has Left Today" "Your Life to Take" and "Devil Dust". 8/5 out of 10.
