|Genre||Melodic Death Metal|
For sure, "Construct" by Dark Tranquillity is one of the most important albums of the melodic death metal genre this year. The ten compositions on "Construct" reveal directness, which derives from melody and emotional depth rather than from complicated riffs, but includes thrilling guitar work at the same time. Furthermore, the mixing skills of the well known producer Jens Bogren (Opeth, Katatonia, Kreator, etc.) get the best sound for the band.

Dark Tranquillity Swedish melodic death metal band from Gothenburg released their newest album Construct which presents a slower and quieter Dark Tranquillity, without blast beats, with very few fast tracks, incorporatig keyboards and clean vocals like never before .
In the essence, this album is different from the others when it comes to the tone which is a little more progressive and gothic-based. All the songs in Construct have the same rhythm and speed, none of them being pure ballad or pure heavy. The melodies are present almost all the time on all tracks, leaving little room for passages purely death, like it was common in the classics Damage Done and Character. Construct seems to be a blending of the sound Dark Tranquillity developed in its previous 9 albums.
Construct is an album for open minded listeners that can enjoy their old slow and more emotional works as Projector and Haven, and that do not concern only with the constant carnage of fast riffs.
In conclusion, Construct has a great deal of things to offer. Even if you may not be a fan of the entire album, there is however, at least one song everyone can enjoy. Construct is just the construction of a new era in Dark Tranquillity’s career.
