Review by JD on April 20, 2010.
DarkRise is a Death Metal band that comes straight out of the cold swept mountains of Switzerland, and makes an impression right off... as they really do grab your attention like a madman with an atomic bomb at their disposal. This is just a sample of the music ahead here, boys and girls.
Right off the bat, it is clear that the band seems to have one of the fastest drummers that have ever been put out there because it seem to batter your every sense to the core. Taking the sheer violence of Classic Death Metal and then mixes in some seriously napalm fuelled extreme Speed metal... ends up developing a sound that can only be described as wicked.
Songs like ‘Our Victory’ and ‘Facing The Storm’ are intense depiction of what the band is all about. Lyrically they are amazing, while the music can only be described as rooted in pure brutality. With guitars that cut you in half musically while the bassist seem to be trying to pound to the center of the earth itself, DarkRise powers through every track like they were on a mission for total devastation. With a album like this, they are doing just that.
If your looking for the newest Nu-Metal band or some Progressive Metal to wet your appetite with, you are not going to get it with this album!! If your looking for some serious Death Metal in its purest form... not to mention the nastiest form as well... Get DarkRise’s newest album.
