One would probably expect a band named Dew-Scented to tread the gothic, ambient metal netherworld, but these Germans, in fact, specialize in neo-death metal/thrash of the most frantic and no-holds-barred stripe imaginable. Quite a spectacle to be heard, typically maniacal creations like "Processing Life," "Out of the Self" and "Vortex" race by at utterly blinding speeds and with almost super-human intensity; their onslaught characterized by Leif Jensen's possessed-sounding screams, Florian Müller's crunchy hyper-staccato riffing, and Uwe Werning's octopus-like precision drumming (no slouch himself, bassist Alexander Pahl hangs on for dear life!) And elsewhere, additional highlights like "Turn to Ash," "Bled Dry," and "In Defeat" contribute spidery melodic guitar lines for an even more dazzling, At the Gates-derived dimension to the fierce spectacle. Having said that, however, it takes a real glutton for speed to actually sit through and digest these dangerously repetitive blasts. Dew-Scented is both reckless and ballsy to stack them 12 deep, thereby far exceeding the unofficial half-hour limit imposed on such releases by Slayer's form-defining Reign in Blood decades prior, and most listeners may find themselves praying for a break in the action so they can collect their thoughts. But Issue VI offers no such respite -- slowing down for anything beyond the requisitely brief synthetic intro piece is out of the question -- and if you don't think the pace is insane enough to begin with, they throw a minute-long Zeke cover at the end for good measure. The end result is impressive enough, but truly for speed-freaks only.

The Golden Age of American Death Metal

An often rejected, parodied and misinterpreted sub-genre of metal, the fierce death metal has nevertheless succeeded in garnering a significant following over the decades. Arriving in the 80s, the genre continues to evolve; from its early pursuit of the ultra-violent to its more recent incorporation of aspects from more mainstream genres. Let us look back at the origins of death metal.

1972: The Album’s Golden Year

1972 was a monumental year for albums. From the The Rolling Stones to Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin to Big Star, there was an abundance of artists releasing career-defining and redefining music. Here we make our case for ten of the best.

The Dark Side of the Moon: An Astronomical Success

Pink Floyd's ground-breaking album The Dark Side of the Moon was the result of a long creative process that began around 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (the main track from the eponymous album) was, for Nick Mason at least, where it all began. Their next album Ummagumma (1969) gave each band member the opportunity to create a solo piece, though they would have to combine their talents if they wanted to hit the jackpot. Pink Floyd continued to search for the perfect record with Meddle, an album which highlighted their skills in the studio, and Atom Heart Mother, before they reached nirvana with The Dark Side of the Moon. And the album’s perfection hasn’t faded one bit.
