THE GARDNERZ (Sweden) "It All Fades" CD EP (Doom / Death Metal)
Abyss Records -- Running time: 35:57

A follow up to their full length album "The System of Nature", "It All Fades EP" introduces a new drummer into the fold with the usual suspects from System.  It's a solid effort from these South Norwegians second release on Abyss Records.  Really marketed as Doom but they really transcend all things heavy.  Doomy yes, but also haunting and their twin guitar attack is textbook Priest.  No frills balls to the wall Death Metal with a slow beat and forays into differing vocal styles.  Its different, it works and these guys should be all over the states touring.  

At first opening The Gardnerz "Melatonin" harkens back to a straight up four piece sonata of ingenuity in metal making.  A clean guitar diddle opens the number with interpolating crisp tones, then a solid groove comes in with a heavy handed drumbeat.  Like Thor himself was beating the shit out of some skins Vedrans first foray with the Gardnerz is undisputed.  I would be remiss if i didn't mention the underlying ping ponging bass.  We have all heard it before, but these dudes make the shit original.  They really take the time and interleave a masterpiece of original metal.  The dual vocals at the end on "Melatonin" sound like vintage Celtic, if not as masterful, at least more hauntingly.  No verse chorus verse here...just straight up DOOM!

"Don't Look Back" is what was so great about 90's death metal, equal parts Malevolent Creation and Morbid Angel with slightly slower time signatures and even sludgy-er breakdowns, this is what I miss about the scene.  Everyone got so fucking fast and learned how to sweep solo and do a blast beat that a black guy from New Year invented (a la Suffocation) but these dudes bring the shit back to the basics with, as the lyrics suggest, an eye for an eye approach to brutality.  You get as much out of this EP as you put in.   Clocking in at 35 minutes its damn near a full album.  Only difference you get more bang for your buck and their chops abound as much their songwriting.  "Don't Look Back" is a seven plus minute opus of sheer doom with interludes of melody.
