Dimentianon/Collapse The Void/Paragon Records/2010 CD Review

Dimentianon are a band from New York that plays a style of black metal that also takes influences from doom, death, ambient and progressive music and this is a review of their 2010 album "Collapse The Void" which will be released by Paragon Records.

Drums cover alot of different ground with some slow to midpaced beats mixed in with a good amount of fast drumming and brutal blast beats, while the keyboards bring in a good amount of atmospheric, progressive and symphonic elements to the music, as for the bass playing it has a very dark and progressive sound that contains alot of strength and depth.

Rhythm guitars mix fast melodic black metal riffs with some doom metal riffs that also contain a brutal death metal edge as well as progressive parts mixed in with some thrash influences, while the lead guitars have a very dark progressive death metal feel to them mixed in with alot of different influences from many different styles of metal.

Vocals are high pitched black metal screams that also take influences from classic metal with some deep growls being used at times mixed in with a small amount of clean sung female vocals., while the lyrics cover everyday life type of themes, as for the production it sounds very professional and you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.

In my opinion Dimentianon are a very original band that should appeal to all fans of melodic black metal as well as symphonic black metal. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Breathe Deep" and "All Goods Things End". RECEMMONDED BUY.
