By Goatsden

Gutteral and grim death metal with gonads

After more than a decade of demos, Sweden’s Dead Awaken unleash their debut full-length, and it’s a death metal beast all the way. Certainly, this duo know how to punish their instruments, as it’s a tight and precise attack. “Kingdom Of Damnation” is particularly effective and memorable, with huge riffs and the requisite vomited vocals. “Mudhell” is another crusher, and slows it all down to an almost militaristic yet metallic crawl.

All of this is superbly produced, with a thickness and good mid-range alongside a deep and gutteral low-end. Dead Awaken take a proven, even stereotyped genre and present it with more finesse than most, varying tempos and switching up their game from track to track. “Where Hope Turns Dripping Red” is a must-hear for fans of classic death metal.
