Tribulation

Tribulation debuted in 2006 with an EP and followed that up with their proper first album, 2009's The Horror, a fantastic slice of prime Swedish death metal that put them on the map. Yet four years later, the ironically-titled The Formulas Of Death signalled a significant change, forgoing most of the brutality of Horror and instead moving into a more relaxed gothic rock/metal mold, with only the gruff vocals a true reminder of days of yore. They followed that with The Children Of The Night in 2015, and just like that, Tribulation were no longer a death metal band. It's still quite rare in the metal world for a band to slide from one genre to another over the course of a career, and these guys deserve full credit for doing so pretty seamlessly, embracing and extending their sound with each successive album, while not entirely abandoning their roots.
