The Plague Symphony - 'The Black Gate' review by Concreteweb
The Devil Knows You're Dead Records ' third release is, again, from a Coventry-based band. The Plague Symphony is a quintet that releases this mini-album (total running time: 17:33 ) with a morbid grin on their face, I guess. After the industrialised intro " Storming The Black Gate ", Daniel Dixon (grunts, screams, throat and growls + lyrics), guitar players Daniel Mills (who also composed the intro) and Andrew Slattery , drummer Jamie Ivis and bass player Lee Barnett show what The Plague Symphony stand for: a brutal, grinding 'powerhouse' of Metal. The quintet mixes mostly fast old school Death Metal with grinding eruptions and deadly, devastating low-tempo bombast, a sound quality that refers to the old school and an atmosphere that, indeed, also exhales a touch of old school madness and darkness. I especially like the equilibrium between a primitive, almost low-budget approach and the freshness of 'old school-inspired' material in a pretty modern jacket. This is technical-chaotic supremacy from Grindopia.

77,777/100
