DEAD AWAKEN (Sweden) “Where Hope Turns Dripping Red” CD review by www.snoozecontrol.be

By Jordy

Dead Awaken is a Swedish Death Metal band that surprisingly been around for a while in the scene. The band rushed into the Death Metal world in the year 2002. The only band member that currently still falls short of this early period is the singer and guitarist Jörgen Kirstensen. As some great bands from the seventies and eighties, the famous Guns N ‘Roses , the band knew many changes in terms of members making their debut album still failed to materialize. However, the Holy Trinity that the band today raises to a higher level than ever before was only created in 2010, following the departure of Bass guitarist Andreas “Fluff” Moors.

Anno 2013 the band consists of three former members of the band ABHOTH, a Death Metal band from the 90s’. As lead singer is still Jörgen Kirstensen, on drums and Mats Blückert as bass guitarist Magnus Wall. Together, these three men spent an entire time in the studio and released in April, sending the world a few demos their first album with dark title “Where hope turns dripping red”.

This album combines old ABHOTH influences with pure Death Metal and a hint of Trash Music, an ideal combo for any metal fan. The album contains some gems including the intro song ” Carnivore “that’ll blow your mind from the first riff. Throughout the album you are sucked into a trance in which your blood begins to boil and you can not help but enjoy the pure ecstasy that the music you provide. Sung is not very much, as in most Death Metal albums, but that’s just the strength of songs like ” Envy the Dead “that take you into drum beats that make you accelerate heartbeat and where gescream only but serves as a bonus. In short, a band that definitely needs to be further monitored and that still will return to the scene often.

DEAD AWAKEN (Sweden) “Where Hope Turns Dripping Red” CD review by www.hardrockinfo.com

By Jimmy Blom

So, this band is still alive? I got some demos with them a couple of years ago, but after that I haven’t heared anything. But now their debut album is here, and the music has changed a bit, ‘cus diden’t they play grind before? I might be totally wrong about that, but anyway.. This time they play death metal that goes on like a bulldozer in a war, and it’s really good indeed. The band is nowadays a duo (trio when they play live) from Västerås, Sweden. DEAD AWAKEN have actually been around for over 10 years already, but there has only been demos until now.

MAAX (U.S.) “Unholy Rock & Roll” DIGI CD review by www.mariosmetalmania.com

Posted in Abyss Records Artists News with tags , , , , on April 24, 2013 by Michael McCoy II

MAAX (U.S.) “Unholy Rock & Roll” DIGI CD review

by www.mariosmetalmania.com

By Kees Schijven

MAAX started out in the summer of 2006 by founding members Kyle Kreider (guitar) and Jeff Brown (drums). MAAX have already released a debut album ‘Dawnbringer’ in 2009, after which original vocalist/bassplayer Sky Kingrey left the band. The band found an interested independant label in Abyss Records who released their album. Soon after that the ‘Six Pack Witchcraft’EP was released in 2010. Newest addition to the band followed in the person of Jeremy Starkey (Necrophagous) on bass, while Brett switched to second guitar. In this line up the band recorded their latest, third opus and second full lenght work of art, called ‘Unholy Rock & Roll’. MAAX plays a mix of old school black thrash n roll metal, A lot of Motorhead and Venom influences can be heard throughout their music, just listen to the song ‘Maax’ and you know what I mean, nothing wrong with that, certainly not since I am a long time fan of both mentioned bands. So originallity is not their main goal, that’s for sure, but what they do, they do best, they will get every party going, they are the US equivalent of european thrashers Tankard, though with a slightly different kind of music. The devil of rock n roll has arrived, his name; MAAX, songs like ‘Rot n Roll’, ‘Do What Thou Wilt’, or ‘Black Thrash Em All’ tell it all. This is a very enjoyable album, not the most technical or original, but efficiently well done. To my personal favorite tracks belong ‘Overthrone’ (really black) , ‘Black Thrash Em All’ with black raspy vocals and thrashing guitars. The production could have been done a little heavier or fatter, especially where the drums are concerned, but overall it’s a great, enjoyable album!

Rating: 78/100

DAEMONICUS (Sweden) “Deadwork” CD review by Ripple Music

Posted in Abyss Records Artists News with tags , on March 18, 2013 by Michael McCoy II

DAEMONICUS (Sweden) “Deadwork” CD review

by Ripple Music

By The Ripple Music

Old style death metal from Sweden and although Daemonicus aren’t reinventing the wheel Deadwork is excellent fast, furious death that puts so-called modern-day death metal to shame. This is how it should be! Throughout Deadwork the band never lets off speed keeping the pedal to the metal which could have made the album boring. But the skillful musicianship and a great knack for changing things up at the right moment keeps it fresh and vibrant.

Another thing that makes me like the album is the sound and feel of the mighty The Crown, especially singer Stefan Hagström who resembles Johan Lindstrand a lot but with a raspier voice. Also the song structure is akin to their Swedish counterpart and I just love it.

Helt enkelt för jävla bra gubbar!!!
