Frozen Dawn - The Decline of the Enlightened Gods

Frozen Dawn – The Decline of the Enlightened Gods Review

The trio from Madrid success delivering a great melodeath-black record that drinks directly from Dissection and Necrophobic -being the closer a cover of theirs-, or more specifically from Dissection‘s copycat band Naglfar circa 2003, when they released Sheol. What’s interesting in The Decline of the Enlightened Gods is both songwrittng and production are more interesting than those of other copycat bands such as Thulcandra or the mentioned Naglfar.

Maybe because of the cymbal and doble-bass pedal work in some parts, Mgła also comes to mind (and inevitably Uada). So the freshness on this one isn’t great, but with such a collection of well written tracks, who cares? Also, the devil is in the details, and this has been mastered by Dan Swanö and has a cover painted by Mariusz Lewandowski. Why are you not listening to it yet?
