Margin of Existence is a Melodic Death Metal band formed in 2006. Soon they started working on their own songs, in order to deliver us a combination of aggression and melody. So they did with their full length album “The Road to Despair”.

This album consists of 10 songs. Each song has own its personality as throughout the whole album you can see the band is influenced from a great variety of bands.Heavy metal riffs which sound a lot like At the Gates, The Haunted or In Flames. Furthermore you can feel that they are also influenced from Iron Maiden, since some leads on guitars sound Maidenish. I’d say that is a great deal and you should check this band if you love Swedish death metal. They play a combination of Heavy Metal riffs followed by nice melodies. Lots of good ideas in this one that won’t bore you for sure. The production of the album also sounds very good since such kind of music needs a good production!

As I said earlier the great riffs on the guitars are followed by killer vocals influenced by the early In Flames or Amon Amarth. Also great basslines are played here followed by nice ideas on the drums! You should check out these guys. The whole result in this album is great and this is definitely an album someone should listen for sure! And remember, they do their job greatly without making it boring, after all they know how to work on their influences.

I also think someone should see this band live because every song in this album is made for headbanging. Songs that I liked most in this one are: Isolation, Human Recycle, The Road to Despair, Altera Pars, Under the Shadow and Infinite.
