I should be able to just summarize this album in a few simple sentences. For those of you with a short attention span, I'll make a valiant attempt to lay this one out for you: if you like Nasum, Rotten Sound, Gadget, or anything else that falls under the category of "excellent Scandinavian grind", you should do whatever's possible to track down a copy of Doomsday Comfort. If that's not enough, I'll note that I'm relatively sure it's the last album produced by Mieszko Talarczyk (Nasum), and it's just as noisy, thick, and incredible as anything else he's done.
Featuring members of Rotten Sound, ...And Oceans, and The Duskfall, it's easy to see how they're able to fulfill their desire to pummel listeners with adroit and skilled grind. With steady blasts and the standard dual guttural low/beserk high vocals, Deathbound are every bit as worthy as any of the aforementioned acts. Although fitting neatly into the genre, they do something a little uncharacteristic and manage to extend 13 songs to 33 minutes, although it goes by just as quickly as some of the 45 second eruptions other acts deliver. Barely containing their intense breaks and utilizing the production to the fullest with echoing screams, menacing tracks like "Take Left" and "For The Rats" should be enough to convince any disbeliever of how necessary this album is to help fill the void created after the loss of Nasum. I regret to say that I haven't heard their first album, To Cure the Sane with Insanity, so I'm unable to say how it compares, but I'm fairly positive it's similar. Given the excitement generated by this current release, it's safe to say I'll be picking that up soon to complement this release.
It's a no-brainer. If you like this style, you'll like this album. If you have no idea if you like this style, this definitely wouldn't be a bad starting point for you. Keep an eye on these guys, and look out for their upcoming split with Deathchain.
