Let me get one thing straight: Dark Disciple are scary. That’s right! Scary! And I love it! This is Satanic Death Metal at its most brutal and evil, with four blistering tracks of unclean energy that enters your skull with the force of a power drill. The first thing that struck me was the variation in vocal styles that range between sub-level growls to glass-shattering screams, and that within one line of a verse. The demo starts out with "Beneath the Inverted Cross," a total onslaught on the ears with harsh, stabbing riffing and staccato drums. Just as you think this CD can’t possible peak any higher, we are then subjected to the wonderfully atmospheric "Revelations in Black" (my favourite track on the CD) with an almost doom-laden riff and a steady dirge of a drum beat. Then "Headless By Dawn" intrudes on the senses with its shredding guitars and thrash influenced drive. Lots of hatefilled screams ensure the mood isn’t lost by the time the final track, "Wicked Inherit the Earth," hits the ear drums. This track has probably the most standardised Death Metal sound, and with a middle section that makes me think of early Sabbath, but of a more extreme variety. All in all, I am impressed with these guys and expect great things from them in times to come. Check them out at www.darkdisciple.net and also hear some of this demo CD at www.mp3.com/Dark_Disciple.
