Day Of Doom are a band from New York that plays an old school and brutal form of New York style death metal and this is a review of their 2014 album "The Gates of hell" which will be released by Lavadome Productions.
The sound s of hell start off the album before going into a brutal and fast death metal sound along with a mixture of growls, screams and blast beats as well as bringing in solos and leads and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and the band also has clean and acoustic playing in their sound at times which also brings a very progressive sounding feeling to the recording.
The horror movie samples the band uses makes the music have a more evil edge to it as well as making the brutal death metal sound this band creates have a dark atmosphere and the band also bring in small amounts of melody into certain sections of the recording along with a light thrash influence which is more closer to the first wave death metal style.
As the album progresses the band finds their sound mixing in the early brutal death metal sound with the more modern one while also staying away from anything ultra technical and bringing back a more back to basics approach to brutal death metal and their instrumentals are the best i have hear since Morbid Angle's early work wit h this band also seeming to have an influence on the band.
Day Of Doom bring back a brutal death metal sound that has no elements of anything core or too technical while they still have a small amount of that and also brings back an evil atmosphere which most brutal bands of this genre ignore, the production is very professional sounding while the lyrics cover dark, horror and occult themes.
In my opinion Day Of Doom are a very great sounding brutal death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should c heck out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Gates Of Hell" "An Evil Demoncy (The Last Days of Sodom" "Circle of Eternal Aftermath" and "Through Horrible Despair". 8/5 out of 10.
