Dawn of Demise’s The Suffering: The Heaviest Album You’ll Hear All Week
When it comes to Danish death metallers Dawn of Demise, I always come back to this description sent in by MS reader Kasper Maigaard six-and-a-half years ago, just after the release of their second full-length A Force Unstoppable:
They’re a Danish five-piece, no-fucking-around death metal band. They’re so fucking heavy, as in: slow, technical, ice cold, evil, and fucking brutal. They’re not trying to (re)invent anything, they just master everything, and their only goal is to mow you down and crush your face with their sound.
No Clean Singing keeps the flowery (errr… un-flowery) descriptions flowing: “phalanx of sledgehammer grooves,” “pavement-cracking percussive power,” “fusillades of militaristic riffing,” “piranha swarms of guitar derangement,” and “spine-fracturing hammer blows” are just a few of the ways Islander has described Dawn of Demise’s new album The Suffering. If that doesn’t hook you, congratulations, you have a soul.
