The Dawn Razor are a solo project from France that plays a mixture of black, thrash and death metal with a musical style he refers to as 'sublime metal' and this is a review of his self released 2018 album "Renaissances" which will be released in March.
A very heavy yet melodic sound starts off the album before going into a very fast direction which also introduces blast beats onto the recording along with some black metal screams while the vocals stick to mostly a thrash style as well as the songs and leads also using a great amount of melody.
Death metal elements are also added into the music at times while most of the tracks are very long and epic in length along with the songs also bringing in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts as well as all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them and on some of the tracks the vocals also start utilizing a more melodic tone and as the album progresses a small amount of growls can also be heard.
The Dawn Razor plays a musical style that takes prog, modern thrash, black and death metal and mixes them together to create a sound of his own, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark, violent and hostile themes along with a couple of tracks being written in German and Russian.
In my opinion The Dawn Razor are a very decent sounding mixture of black, death, prog and modern thrash metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this solo project. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Lisboa 1755" "Hekla Mountain" "Fake Paranoia" and "Half Dead Half Reborn". 7 out of 10.
