DAWN OF AZAZEL
"THE TIDES OF DAMOCLES"
Self Released

Hailing from the land of Wizards & Hobbits comes the great DAWN OF AZAZEL out of
New Zealand. These guys have been creating crushing Death Metal since 1999, with a
short break from 2010-2013. "THE TIDES OF DAMOCLES" is the bands fourth full
length release to date, which came out in early 2015. These guys merge the old school
brutality with new school technical Death Metal sounds. These guys have always been
one of my favorites in the scene. They bring on the aggression, speed and heaviness, but
are not afraid to throw in some melodic and grooved out parts. They all so throw in some
tempo changes, break downs and lots of technicality. They changes things up through out
each song with sometimes being heavy on one style or the other in some. The band has
really honed into a solid sound for themselves and tightened up and progressed a lot over
each release. Like most bands, there have been numerous member changes and this may
have lead to the strong advancement in their style and sound. One of the best in the scene
today playing this style! I can't believe that no one has picked these guys up and that
they had to release this album independently. A must for fans of
ANGELCORPSE,
ORDER FROM CHAOS, IMMOLATION, VITAL REMAINS
& INCANTATION!
