Dååth Reunion Imminent?
Innovative Atlanta death metallers Dååth appear to be teasing their return.
On Friday, December 17, the longtime MetalSucks faves posted the below on Facebook:
Although MetalSucks has not been able to confirm the post’s meaning with anyone in the Dååth camp, the post certainly seems to be signaling a reemergence.
Assuming that’s the case, it’s the best news I’ve heard in ages. The number of animals I am sacrificing to Satan tonight in the hopes this comes true will be truly obscene. Fuck vegans, I am single-handedly taking out all the wildlife.
Dååth made three albums (well, four if you count Futility, but I don’t think anyone in the band considered that their proper debut) between 2007 and 2010: The Hinderers, The Concealers, and a self-titled record. The Concealers and Dååth are straight-up GREAT; The Hinderers felt like more a mixed bag at the time of its release, but it’s grown on me a lot in the past few years.
Although the band never officially broke up or went on hiatus or whatever, its members did gradually move on to other projects. Guitarist Emil Werstler, vocalist Sean Zatorsky, and bassist Jeremy Creamer all joined Chimaira, and Zatorsky later joined members of Mayhem, Slipknot, and Dragonforce in Sinsaenum; guitarist Eyal Levi remains an in-demand producer and engineer, and went on to launch the online mixing school Nail the Mix with Joey Sturgis (The Devil Wears Prada, Emmure, etc.) and Joel Wanasek (Monuments, Machine Head, etc.); and drummer extraordinaire Kevin Talley remains drummer extraordinaire Kevin Talley.
You’ll know more when we do. In the meantime, this seems like a great excuse to revisit the band’s past work, no?
