Tale of the Endless is truly striking and absolutely Bastard Bait™, immediately reminiscent of Insomnium’s magnificent opus Winter’s Gate, one of my top ten albums of the 2010s. If you enjoy melodic death metal, do not hesitate to try this out and keep this band on your radar! Favorite track: Tale Of The Endless.

Maestitium is a studio project started by guitarist, vocalist and composer Elias Westrin (Tomb Dweller, ex Voices of Vengeance) in the fall of 2019. Attending a music production course at Hola Folkhögskola outside of Kramfors, Sweden, his school project was decided to be an EP, and thus Maestitium was born.
Since his early teens, it was his deepest passion and dream to one day make an EP in the vein of Insomnium, Sentenced, Wintersun and more, but after countless attempts, even full-length albums, he was never satisfied with the outcome, and none of it was ever released.
Not sure how to go about the instrumental recordings, he searched for months after a drummer and bassist to do sessionwork for the EP, but no one was very interested or able to play what was in mind. Luckily, after doing a gig with the local Judas Priest coverband Metal Gods- Delivering the Goods, he came in contact with Nils “Dominator” Fjellström (Nordjevel, Ex Dark Funeral) and Anton Flodin (Deathbreed), and asked them if they were interested to help out with the recordings of drums and bass. He found the absolute perfect session musicians for the album, and the dream started to become a reality.

Look, I'm generally a doom metal guy so I dont really know how to classify this. Melodic death metal? Symphonic Eco-death metal? Whatever you want to call it, it can only really be described in one word.
The musicianship and energy here are simply top-notch. The performances are incredibly tight, and the production is excellent giving each instrument and voice room to shine. The vocalist (vocalists?) voice has a vast range, and its used very well throughout.
Really stoked on this. bscdoom

Symphonic MeloDeath done right. Every track distinctively stands apart from the others for an all-around entertaining, and often uplifting, listening experience. From the anthemic punchiness of Beyond the Horizon to the raw energy of Built to Last, this entire album will make a fantastic gym companion someday... whenever the fuck we're allowed back. l3e0wu1f

I’m always late to the Death Metal party and by the look of the artwork it was a helluva one, too!
Bog-standard death metal isn’t normally my cuppa, but Desolator says ‘to hell with my cup’ smashing my tea set and lightning my doilies aflame. (good thing I’m a coffee guy)
So, yeah, this is great death metal!
