Abysmal Dawn – From Ashes (Crush)
Death metal from southern California. This mixes old school death metal with new melodic death metal sounds. I hear everything from Death to Behemoth to the Gothenburg sound. Vocals are a big growl, guitars are heavy, drums are fast and the production is amazing.
2. Standard new melodic death metal guitar riff but I did find myself headbanging.
**3. Heavier with some brutal drumming and a more complicated rhythm. A slight black metal sound. A funny breakdown section which sounds like a death metal band doing NYC hardcore.
4. Fast and heavy with a nice riff. There are some riffs that seem forced. Sounds like they tried to throw too many ideas into one song.
**5. Bursts of speed, some stop-start, simpler and heavy.
6. Thrashy opening, pummeling heavy first section, into a slow melodic middle. There are a number of slow sections and an extended guitar solo.
**7. Thrash-y headbanging death metal. A very melodic 80s sounding guitar solo. Towards the end of the track it sound like it ends and then a completely different slow riff shows up. I love this cliché death metal riff.
**8. Maybe the fastest track.
9. Another modern melodic death metal track that has it’s thrashy moments.
OK Stuff -mph
