Dead Awaken are a band from Sweden that plays a very old school form of death metal and this is a review of their 2013 album "Where Hope Turns Dripping Red" which was released by Abyss Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some brutal sounding blast beats being utilized at times, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast death metal riffs that are heavy, brutal and old school sounding with some thrash influences being used at times as well as some melody, while the lead guitars when they are utilized are very old school sounding death metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are mostly deep death metal growls with some high pitched screams being used at times, while the lyrics cover war themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy, old school and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Dead Awaken are a very great sounding heavy and brutal old school death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Carnivore" "Rocket Symphony" "Manic Destructive" and "State of Corrosion". RECOMMENDED BUY.
