DESCENT ”Towers Of Grandiosity”

”Towers Of Grandiosity”
(Redefining Darkness Records)

Battle Helm Rating

It seems that I have hit some sort of Aussie extreme metal motherlode in the last couple of weeks because I don’t think I can remember the last time I had this much cool Australian extreme metal to listen to. DESCENT mixes death metal with black metal and adds to it some touches of hardcore. Perhaps not such a common combo but it works for DESCENT. And who am I to question that. I am though glad that it works because it means that I get to listen to an album full of aggression and anger and some really cool metal. This is on the chaotic side thanks to the hardcore touches which gives it a sort of grindcore flavor. The death metal side keeps it all together so that it doesn’t become noise for noise’s sake. This is a really cool debut release from DESCENT. Anders Ekdahl
