I say it again: The boys from Dawn of Demise just groove that inch harder than the rest.
Thus proved on the long-awaited second full-length by one of the brightest stars
on the Danish death metal sky over the past few years. The recipe is not notably different from the
debut album, 'Hate Takes Its Form', but, if anything, there is slightly less Nevermore and more
Suffocation at play. Possibly more Slayer to that?
Scott Jensen has taken things one notch deeper compared to the last album,
spurting a growl that sounds as if it comes directly from the belly of the
beast. His brother and bass player Bjørn assists with a lighter growl on a few
songs, and what an evil duo they form!
The tightness of Dawn of Demise is still amazing, given the variation and the
band's complex approach to death metal.
'A Force Unstoppable' is a bit like the first Lord of Rings film: It's big and
heavy, but it still flies by.
I think it's safe to say already now that this will be one of the best metal
albums released on Danish soil this year.
