STELLAGEN - From Dying Stars - Reviewed By ADifferentShadeOfBlackMetalZine ! Check it out here at this link: https://darkdoomgrinddeath.blogspot.com/2022/03/stellagenfrom-dying-stars2022-full.html
Stellagen are a band from Australia that plays a melodic mixture of black, death, thrash and power metal and this is a review of their self released 2022 album "From Dying Stars".
Heavy riffing starts off the album while the solos and leads are also done in a very melodic power metal style. Black metal screams are also a very huge part of the recording along with the faster sections of the songs also bringing in blast beats and thrash metal elements and the riffs also add in a great amount of melody.
At times the vocals also melodic sounding while the songs also add in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts. Death metal growls are also added on some of the tracks along with some clean playing also being added into certain sections of the recording along with one song also adding in a brief use of acoustic guitars, as the album progresses a couple of instrumentals can also be heard and a couple of the tracks are also very long and epic in length.
Stellagen plays a musical style that takes melodic black, death, thrash and power metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own. The production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover science fiction, fantasy, literature and real life experiences.
In my opinion Stellagen are a very great sounding melodic mixture of black, death, thrash and power metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Die in my Mind" "Beowulf" and "The ENd". 8 out of 10. - ADifferentShadeOfBlackMetalZine

Sydney, Australia based metal band STELLAGEN's debut album 'From Dying Stars' is set for release on 22 February 2022.
'From Dying Stars' sees STELLAGEN hit the ground running with 11 songs incorporating elements of death/ black metal, power metal, melodic death and thrash metal, with an emphasis on memorable choruses and engaging guitar harmonies and interplay.
The key elements of the band's sound are perhaps best summed up via their first single/ video 'Freedom'!
Check out the video!
STELLAGEN formed in Sydney, Australia in 2019 with the simple goal of making metal they wanted to listen to: heavy yet melodic, with memorable choruses and shredding guitar solos, incorporating elements from death/ black metal but with the sense of melody and catchiness of power metal in both the vocals and guitars.
STELLAGEN features Phil Brown (Vocals/ Guitars), Jimmy Lardner-Brown (Guitars) and Symon Haddad (Bass) with session drums provided by Robin Stone.
The vocals range from death/ black metal growls and screams on one end of the spectrum to melodic clean (yet still 'raw') vocals on the other, with a focus on ensuring each song has a memorable 'hook'. A key feature of the band's style is also the guitar harmonies and interplay between twin brothers Phil and Jimmy, which is backed up by the solid rhythm section of Symon and Robin. Lyrical concepts include real life experiences, literature, and sci-fi/ fantasy.
STELLAGEN's debut album 'From Dying Stars', released 22/02/2022, is the first part of a musical concept, with the counterpart second album set for release later in 2022.
'From Dying Stars' is available for streaming on Spotify, Apple Music and all other streaming platforms.
Physical copies comprising:
- Digipak CD with 12-page booklet; and
