Just Before Dawn – Precis innan gryningen

No Image Available

Quite an international ensemble of ghoulish Old School Death Metal War Veterans, if you have Anders Biazzi (Blood Mortized, ex-Amon Amarth), Rogga Johansson (Really? Well, let’s name a few; Ribspreader, Demiurg, Paganizer, The Grotesquery and so many more), Mr. Hitchcock (Zombiefication), Ralf Hauber (Revel in Flesh) and Rick Rozz (Massacre, ex-Death/Mantas), among others, on the payroll. As we all know, lots of established individuals doesn’t mean quality. But Just Before Dawn delivers the goods, if your hopes aren’t sky high which are common with big collaborations. “Precis innan gryningen” is a solid Bolt Thrower / Hail of Bullets warlike album with decent riffs, all with a Swedish Death Metal sauce. “Groove” is the main key on this album, and the use of different vocalists is a nice touch. This is no supersonic Military airplane, but a sluggish, deadly and heavily built tank to wipe out the enemy with excessive fire power. Sure, there are more sophisticated techniques to conquer, but why change if it is sufficient? (Ricardo)
