DAGON - PARANORMAL ICHTHYOLOGY (*NEW-CD. Bombworks Records) Rare original issue!
Brutality and finesse collide on the debut full length from Dagon. Following up their critically acclaimed EP Secrets of the Deep, Dagon delivers a slab of white hot metal that is sure to impress those who like their metal technical, fast, and brutal. The band mixes furious thrash riffing and machine gun double bass with vocals that span guttural death, grind, and black, and then lays on a heavy dose of 80s worship with an assault of blazing solos, dual harmonies, and memorable melodies. Imagine Iron Maiden getting married to Slayer and adding extremely brutal vocals, and you have a small glimpse of the Dagon sound. The pace rarely lets up, and lovers of classic shred and brutal speed will instantly fall in love. This release features 11 songs, 9 of which are brand new, and 2 which are rerecorded from the EP. Dagon is recommended for fans of Hypocrisy, Dimension Zero, Iron Maiden, Dark Tranquility, Slayer, and those into thrash and death with some serious guitar chops.
