Well, in short, this kills. Cardiac Arrest deliver another nice slab of thrashy death metal and this one is really hard to take off one's playlist. The album is mostly fast paced with some slower passages like "The Dark Domain" which reminds me a lot of 70s doom, with death growls, sharp guitars and a really crushing vibe throughout. It does stand out in what is otherwise mostly a speedy album, though Cardiac Arrest don't go all guns blazing and usually keep things on the slower side of fast (uhuh). It's hard not to headbang or break out the air guitar while listening to this stuff and it's delightfully catchy. There's not much, if anything to complain about A Parallel Dimension of Despair. It will appeal to death metal fans and thrash fans who can handle death growls alike. Certainly one of my favourite death metal albums of 2018, in case that wasn't obvious. ;)
