Dim Mak is a band that received quite a bit of attention from the metal press from the very beginning of their formation as a band. Featuring former members of Ripping Corpse the band caused a more than a little stir with their debut release "Enter the Dragon" in 1999. Almost constant touring garnered them even more favorable press after the debut’s release and has put the band in position to make a jump to the upper echelon of death/hardcore bands.
The new album, "Intercepting Fist" shows flashes of exactly what it would take to get there but it seems like those flashes are just to inconsistent to move them to that next level. If you enjoyed the first album you will definitely enjoy this one as well as there seems to be a lot of similarity between the two and that seems to be the main complaint I have of this one. There doesn’t seem to be much progression from the last disc but for some this may be exactly what they were hoping for. For me personally however I was hoping for a little more from them than this. Not to say this album is bad but maybe my expectations were a little too high and thus it doesn’t seem to get a lot of playing time.
Overall an album that if you haven’t heard the first one from these guys and you enjoy this genre you will definitely not be disappointed. But for those of you who were looking for a little more as I was you may want to take a listen before throwing down the cash.
