Enshine - Transcending Fire (2021)


Perfectly blending melancholy and melody, today we have the latest EP of international duo Enshine, titled “Transcending Fire”. Highly recommended for fans of In Mourning, Insomnium and similar outfits, this release delivers 20 minutes of highly refined melancholic music. Slowly evolving since their 2013 debut release, the band seamlessly blends different influences in a highly appealing and atmospheric package.

Opening with the title track, we are treated to a slow and melodic intro with lush guitar arrangements and highly melancholic atmosphere. The mixture of clean and harsh vocals works in perfect harmony as the track weaves back and forth between heavy passages to more exploratory melody interludes. One of the band’s greatest strengths is the ability to create highly enjoyable songs that are conducive of both fearless headbanging and hypnotic contemplation, as we can hear in “Awake in Void” and the dreamy “Ascend”.

Finishing up with the relaxing acoustic piece “Constellation”, we are left wanting some more and excited about how the band’s sound continues to evolve. If you love Melodic Death/Doom Metal on the more melancholic side, “Transcending Fire” is a good EP to keep you entertained. For those not familiar with Enshine, this band should definitely be on your radar if you enjoy bands like In Mourning, October Tide, Hanging Garden (older), etc.
