DARK REDEEMER ~ Into The Deep Black - Reviewed By Deathrattle Podcast ! Check it out here at this link: https://www.deathrattlepodcast.com/2021/10/dark-redeemer-into-deep-black-september.html
In 2018 the Italian band Aleph was put to rest, staked through the heart and buried in unconsecrated ground but now the band has risen, more terrifying than before.Whereas Aleph, as brutal as that band was concentrated on a more oppressive atmospheric form of death metal, Dark Redeemer is pure death metal coming across as the bastard child of Entombed and Skeletal Spectre so don't assume that 'Into The Deep Black' is just another HM2 clone because Dark Redeemer has reincarnated into a chainsaw wielding slayer, riffs shredding flesh and bone into bloody chunks.
Italian extreme metal is synonymous with a love of adding keyboards into the mix and Dark Redeemer carries on that tradition with unobtrusive organ moaning like a lost soul in the background giving this album an extra layer of gothic creepiness with a dank zombified atmosphere split between a '28 days later' frenzy and the catatonic shuffle of 'Night of the Living Dead'
RECOMMENDED ~ The creepy atmosphere adds an extra dimension to a tried and trusted death metal sound. - Deathrattle Podcast
24 SEPTEMBER: DARK REDEEMER “INTO THE DEEP BLACK” CD Release!
Blasphemous Records is proud to announce DARK REDEEMER’s signing of the contract. They will join the band roster of Music for the Masses Group.
Born out of the ashes of the Bergamo (Italy)-based Death Metal band ALEPH, DARK REDEEMER will make its debut on September 24th 2021 with the full length “INTO THE DEEP BLACK”. An album with 9 old school sick, dark and violent tracks which will satisfy the fans of Obituary, Morbid Angel, Autopsy, Dismember, early Entombed and Celtic Frost.
The album will be distributed by Sleaszy Music (USA), Code 7 (Europe), Wormhole Death Japan, Fans and Bands (Mexico), Egea Music (Italy) and digitally on all digital music stores. The promotion will be entrusted to Metal Devastation USA, Grand Sounds (Europe) and Mazzarella Press Office (Italy).
DARK REDEEMER were born in the summer of 2018 out of the ashes of Aleph, a band devoted to an obscure, progressive death metal band that released four albums between 2006 and 2018. In spite of the great response, both by the fans and the press (Aleph were the Metal Hammer new Italian band of the year in 2006), and their live performances (with standings like Dismember, Necrodeath, Vision Divine and more), the four deathsters decided it was time to overturn their soundscape: the style of DARK REDEEMER was forged in the encounter of the impactful late 80s-early 90s Swedish Death Metal chainsaw-wall-of-sound of Grave, Dismember and Entombed and the mindset, the structures and the sick harmonies of the coeval U.S. scene (Obituary, Morbid Angel, Immolation), passing through the Great Founding Fathers, Celtic Frost. The outcome of it is an uncompromising, uptempo, relentless sonic assault which trasures the lessons given in the last 20-30 years in extreme metal music. And very old-school, indeed.
DARK REDEEMER leaves the listener breathless, dragging him/her into a mighty maelstrom of musical, lyrical violence and malignance. Thus, a return to the roots of the “Sound of Death”, more straightforward than ever and relieved of the progressive divagations which were pivotal in the band’s previous incarnation.
DARK REDEEMER’s debut album, “INTO THE DEEP BLACK” is scheduled for worldwide release on September, 24th by BLASPHEMOUS RECORDS. It will be distributed by: Sleazy Records (USA), Code 7 (Europe), Wormhole Death Japan, Fans and Bands (Mexico), Egea Music (Italy) and digitally on all digital music stores worldwide. The album’s promotion is entrusted to Metal Devastation USA, Grand Sounds (Europe) e Mazzarella Press Office (Italy).
