Deepsend Records appear to have established quite the productive trans-Atlantic pipeline. The Massachusetts-based label has been churning out quality death metal releases from the European underground on a reliable basis, and they’ve become one of my go-to labels for my br00tality fix. A Force Unstoppable, Deepsend’s latest offering and the second from
The Danish scene is known for its emphasis on chunky grooves, and that’s more or less what Dawn of Demise are slingin’ on their sophomore effort. Though DoD regularly dole out Cannibal Corpse-style speed riffs and some surprisingly fluid soloing, this album’s nine songs are loaded with—and dependent upon—moshtastic breakdo…erm, slam parts. Though vocalist Scott Jensen’s tendency to gurgle might suggest otherwise, these guys aren’t as derpy as Devourment or their ilk. They would, however, fit in nicely alongside Pyrexia, Internal Bleeding, and other less-well-known NYDM acts.
When it comes to Danish death metal on Deepsend (holy alliteration, Batman!), I prefer The Cleansing’s brainier and more song-oriented approach over these dudes. But if towering, well-produced beatings are what you’re after, Dawn of Demise will sate your animal urges.
