ASHCLOUD – Abandon All Light (CD)
Remember when the Swedish death metal scene was quite well known with the likes of Dismember, Carnage, Vomitory, Grave, Unleashed, Unanimated, and the famous Studio Sunlight productions found nearly on every death metal record coming from Sweden?
If you do, you’re in for a one hell of a treat that’s sure to kick your ass with pounding rhythms, hard hitting percussive moments and old school death metal vocals that’ll drive you mad. The vocals are the icing on Ashcloud’s bloody cake, and their throat slitting music is as barbaric as it gets on “Abandon All Light”.
“A Hundred Years Of Darkness” comes at you like a burning spear destined for your heart. Yes, this bitch is more brutal than the assault itself.
“Devoured Alive” has that sinister guitar sound, whereby you feel as if you’re caught in some bloody massacre, and there is no hope for making it out alive.
Ashcloud definitely knows how to mindfuck the listener to the point of driving them insane. This is literally a killer quality to have within your songs, because if you can instill fear in the hearts of your listeners, you’re certainly ahead of the game of death.
Check it out and watch your life pass you by in an instance. [Xtreem] Sarjoo Devani
