"WHERE HOPE TURNS DRIPPING RED"
"WHERE HOPE TURNS DRIPPING RED" is the debut full length release from Sweden's
DEAD AWAKEN. These guys have been around since 2002 and put out a bunch of demos
prior to this release. These guys take things back to the old school. They play a combination
of European & American Death Metal that was really big in the '90's. The music has that
very brutal and aggressive European Death Metal sound mixed with a more technical
American Death Metal style. These are both favorite styles of mine, so of course I was
digging everything that DEAD AWAKEN was dishing out. The guitar work is some what
intricate at times and then leads right into fast paced shredding madness with the mile a
minute drum beats and blast doing the same. The vocals done by Jörgen Kristensen are a
mid ranged to lower Death growl style. These guys are going to be huge in the Death Metal
underground, especially after this album hits many ears. This is a must for fans of
SUFFOCATION, DISMEMBER, CARCASS, AVULSED, ABORTED & INSISION!
