Daemonicus - Deadwork

Some Swedish death metal? I looked at my wife and joked about Sweden and the amount of death metal bands from there and I thought, “Here we go”, but this was one of the better bands that I’ve heard from there.

The band kicks ass, some awesome playing, throbbing bass, pounding drums without the cheesy tap, tap, tap noise of the double bass from most bands, some great guitar work and “heaven” forbid, and a vocalist that can be understood. This second album by DAEMONICUS has some great production work, clear and not too polished, just a great job to bring out the anger and power from this band. The band has some thrash and metal mixed in the way that they play, which really added a lot to this album. “The Grandeur of Total Termination” and “We Feast On Your Flesh” are some heavy-hitting songs that I played a few times to get the full effect of the band’s power.

Some great speed, great guitar leads push this into another level that really turned this into a keeper and one that will be played a lot by me. I couldn’t recommend this album more.
