Album Review

Reviewed 2005-08-24
The silly named but awesome ultra-speed/death metal of Dew Scented is totally worth your time. Not really “retro” but a great mix of the classics (Destruction, Kreator, Slayer, At The Gates) and a totally batshit crazy, blast-beat fixated version of The Haunted.
(((((((1))))) Approaching grindcore speed but this is death/thrash, crazy 80’s soloing!
((((2)))) Straight-up thrash. Total “Haunting The Chapel”-era Slayer approach meets Sepultura. Good breakdowns, simple & potent riffs.
((((3)))) Basic thrash mixed up with modern flair. German vs. Bay Area styles, thrash vs. speed, 2005 vs. 1985.
(((4))) Standard form thrash with severe Slayer worship.
((((5)))) Rhythmic, charging, mid-paced, catchy.
((6))) Modern extreme yet melodic sound, like current-era Slayer/Lamb of God thudding.
((((7)))) Right after “Gooooo!” They don’t thrash it up. (I guess they didn’t wanna be yet another ATG ripoff). Huge inspiration from Destruction, big cycling riffage, verrrry nice.
((((8)))) OTT thrash mixed with medium speed Megadeth & almost out of breath vocals. 80’s video game FX by way of soloing.
(((((9))))) Relentless ultra-speed (FCC “fucking” 0:26), loud & crunchy riffage.
(((((10)))) Sodom/ATG inspired walloping velocity & intensity.
((((11)))) Standard but solid death/speed.
((((((12))))) Zeke cover. Ultra-speed by way of punk n’ roll. I dunno the original but this KILLS!
