DYSCARNATE - And So It Came To Pass

This band comes from Essex, England, and this is their second release so far. The trio from England is playing very interesting Death Metal, sometimes closer to what American bands sound like, but also incorporating tons of European Death Metal elements as well. The result is catchy, often melodic, but always groovy, brutal and raw. The first thing to notice is the talent of the band, which manages to create music that is top notch. Either on fast blast-beatings, or mid-tempo head-banging parts, the rhythm section is there to deliver, and does that in the best possible way. The vocals are brutal, aggressive, well worked and fit perfectly with the style of the music. What impressed me at times, was the technical skills of the drummer, whose pounding way of performing gives an extra heaviness to the whole sound, specially on mid tempo parts. The band has also done a very good job in the arranging area, creating songs that are moving on a certain path, but are all interesting and enjoyable to listen to. Finally the production is modern and clear enough, but without sacrificing heaviness or energy. Technical and inspired, full of nice songs, and enough variety in the tempos, this album has all it takes to become a favorite. And judging from the quality of the songs, the band is promising a lot for the years to come. So if you are a fan of Death Metal, then do check those guys and plenty of hours of sonic assaulting are assured.
