Dark Redeemer «Into the Deep Black» - Reviewed By Metal Wave ! Check it out here at this link: http://www.metalwave.it/recensione.php?id=9853
Born from the ashes of Aleph, a band that had had a remarkable response even among the pages of our webzine, Dark Redeemer, modify the dark death metal style of Aleph in favor of a death metal purely linked to the 90s, they release this debut entitled "Into The Deep Black", within which, the nine pressed tracks, they evoke the gestures of the best Entombed, Dismember and Grave with a certain abundance full of merits. In particular, given the moment the "fashions" of recalling the deeds of that glorious past to revive to those who have musically fully experienced those magical moments like those who write these lines, the band delights the listener with gaits and sounds typically attributable to the time referring for the Major to Swedish death metal, also strong of mid-tempo gaits and blast beats such as to forge a real sonic assault. However, what delights the forty-five minutes of listening is the climate that the combo manages to forge, even recalling those classic backgrounds with some notes of piano typical of the Entombed style, with a real return to the past for those who loved that splendid musical era more. As already mentioned, this new band also has many merits, of which they had already been well aware with the excellent Aleph, with that particular and superfine style that it had earned, but now I wonder, without any spirit of negative criticism, but was there really a need to confuse with dozens and dozens of national and international bands that today evoke the death metal of the 90s moreover changing their name? Many undoubtedly may get confused or no longer find the identity they had with the previous band but on the other hand the fans are constantly changing just like the style of this new band. - Metal Wave
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).
