Adfail from Russia released its third studio album via Another Side Records which is based in Ukraine and is some sort of division from Metal Scrap Records.
Adfail started under the name Asphodel somewhere in 2007 and changed its name to Adfail shortly after that. In 2011 the first full-length was released that’s was followed by the second full-length in 2013 and an EP in 2017.
Now a new EP is released and although the female vocals are not as present as you probably are used from Vokills Adfail’s Poetry of Ruins is interesting enough to feature them here on Vokills.
The music is in the vein of the British doom/death wave from the 90s, think of Anathema and My Dying Bride, add a little gothic metal from the 90s and you get Adfail. The music is spiced up with female vocals from Yulia Alymova and some operatic vocals from Victoria Kirillova and both ladies provide the gothic metal element in the music together with the violin.
The mixture of heavy parts with crushing guitar sound and the melodic stuff works really well, Poetry of Ruins is a very nice EP with an old school vibe.
