Dauthuz are a band from the Netherlands that plays an old school form of death metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Destined For Death" which was released by WormHoleDeath Records.
A sci-fi orientated atmosphere starts off the album before going into more of a heavier musical direction which also introduces melodic guitar leads onto the recording while the vocals are mostly death metal growls along with the faster sections of the songs bringing in a decent amount of blast beats.
Dark sounding melodies can be heard in some of the guitar riffing while the music is very heavily rooted in the 90's along with the songs also bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and at times the vocals bring in screams and one of the later tracks also brings in quest vocals from the singer of Izegrim as well as the closing track bringing in a brief use of synths.
Dauthuz plays a style of death metal that is very old school and traditional in the early 90's style, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover darkness, death and war themes.
In my opinion Dauthuz are a very great sounding old school death metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Destined For Death" "Made In Blood" "Tormentor" and "Warmaster". 8 out of 10.
