Dagoba are a band from France that plays a mixture of industrial, death and groove metla and this is a review of their 2013 album "Post Mortem Nihil Est" which was released by Verychords.
The album starts out with a very dark sound with synths before going into a heavier direction along with growls and melody and after awhile melodic vocals become a part of the music and there are also some symphonic elements being brought into the recording at times.
As the album moves on melodic guitar solos and leads are brought into the music an d the band bring in a great amount of death and groove metal elements as well as bringing in traces of industrial at times while they do not over power the music and at times they also bring in a small amount of blast beats.
Halfway through the album acoustic guitars are brought in briefly along with some ethnic and esoteric sounds on an instrumental before returning to a more heavy industrial direction as well as bringing in spoken word samples.
Dagabo have a very interesting approach with their music wit h the way they mix groove, death metal and industrial with a good amount of melody and heaviness and while this is not a style I would regularly listen to this band do it very and actually make this genre enjoyable at times.
Song lyrics cover death, life, psychology and atheism, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Dagoba are a very decent sounding mixture of death, groove and industrial metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "When Winter" "Yes We Die" "The Day After the Apocalypse" and "By The Sword". 7/5 out of 10.
