SHADOW OF DEMISE
PREMATURE BURIAL
SELF-RELEASED

NYC death metal quintet Shadow of Demise keeps old school fires burning on their chunky eight-track affair PREMATURE BURIAL. Taking cues from the likes of Obituary, Six Feet Under, pre-SEASONS IN THE ABYSS Slayer and Morbid Angel, this group provides a well-tread yet punishing and provoking blend of vintage Florida-era mid-tempo rhythmic pummeling with a classically-designed death metal vocal adorned with a crisp and clear yet demonic delivery keeping the flow steady and the mood ominous (“Path of the Monolith”). While this band may not be particularly complex or original, their sharp twin guitar riffs, authentic death metal shredding (“Bottom of a Bottle”) and overall bludgeoning consistence bolsters their painstaking attack, allowing their sheer disdain of the world to show.
