DEAD AWAKEN (Sweden) “Where Hope Turns Dripping Red” CD review by

By Saetta Gatto

Eleven fucking years. So is the time taken by the Swedes Dead Awaken to achieve their first full-length. Said an old proverb: “time gives advice.” And it must have received several tips to be able to create a sound so perfect, pure death metal style. This is perhaps one of those cases where it would be enough to observe the cover to have some idea of what lies ahead. A tank, soldiers, rubble. A war. The war in the sound. The CD opens with ” Carnivore “, where an aggressive sound and a masterful voice growl are the masters. ” Deutsches Afrika Corpse “is perhaps the song with the sound faster than all of them. ” Rocket Symphony “begins with bass and then have a sudden change of speed (typical of the genre). The guitar riffs are violent and concise. Just as in a battle: first the gun that fires and then the atomic bomb that destroys. In ” Venom of the Population “we find an opening melodic turns slowly slip back into the vortex until death. All embellished with dramatic bass lines that accompany the voice on the chorus. Guitars fast and scratching bring this piece to get the podium for grandeur. The lyrics leave little to the imagination. Death, destruction, demons, divine, all written in a very fluid and smooth. The use of the double bass, the bass punchy, rhythmic guitars that can change depending on the need, are the elements that characterize the entire work. A cd to listen to, share and spread. If you love the genre you absolutely can not ignore it.
