Desultory/Counting Our Scars/Pulverised Records/2010 CD Review

Desultory are a band from Sweden that has a long history in the scene, with a musical style that I would describe as being classic sounding Swedish death metal and this is a review of their comeback album "Counting Our Scars" which will be released by Pulverised Records in 2011.

Drums alternate between midpaced to fast drumming with a good amount of blast beats, while the bass playing has a very dark tone which seems to follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars and on the last sound they have a very powerful sound of their own.

Rhythm guitars alternate between midpaced to fast Swedish sounding death metal riffs mixed in with some thrash influences and a great amount of melody, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding Swedish death metal guitar solos.

Vocals are mostly high pitched death metal growls, while the lyrics touch on hateful everyday themes with a touch of violence, as for the production it has a somewhat professional feel to it.

In my opinion this is a great comback from Desultory and it is a return to their classic death metal sound, instead of the groove metal that the band experimented with in the mid 90's and if you where a fan of their classic albums, you should enjoy their new release. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Counting Our Scars" "This Broken Halo" "Uneven Numbers" and "Dead Ends". RECEMMONDED BUY.
