'A Darkness Descends' is the second full-length release from the Demonic Resurrection stable. This release has come after a long time spent by the Demonstealer in stabilizing the band with a new line-up following several changes after the release of Demonic Resurrection's first full-length album 'Demonstealer' in 2000.
‘A Darkness Descends’ comprises of 12 tracks that have surely done Mumbai-based Demonic Resurrection proud. With their unique blend of aggressive, melodic, power metal and Behemoth-like vocals, Demonic Resurrection have carved a niche for themselves in the Indian underground extreme metal scene.
Nearly 5 years in the making, ADD is a must-listen not only because it is an excellent set of songs, but also because the final mix is pristine - every instrument can be clearly heard, while simultaneously blending together without the album sounding over-produced.
There are so many CDs that get by on one or two fantastic songs.. ADD has three - Frozen Portrait, Apocalyptic Dawn and The Summoning are nothing short of orgasmic.
Carnival of Depravity begins with an eerie gypsy solo; Where Shadows Lie is very well-structured; Invoking the Demons starts out slow and then really picks up pace after about two mins, while A Darkness Descends and Spirits Of The Mystic Mountains define fantastic riffs.
Going by this album, DR has really hit their stride and they're only getting better with time.
