End Of Ages

Rated 4/5 (80%) (10 Votes)

In this land of alterna-crap that is Ottawa, Deämon stands out as a technical death metal band.  I'm not much of a fan of death metal, especially the guttural vocals, but Deämon's material is pretty addictive.  This 4-track EP starts with the title track, End Of Ages, whose riffs remind me at times of Slayer's best stuff.  Devolved is next, not as good as End Of Ages but it has its moments, although it goes somewhat unnoticed when I listen to it.  Bleeding Thoughts is next, I love the beat on this one, a headbanger's dream come true :) that definitely stands out on this album.  At 2:39, it's also the shortest song.  Inheritance closes the deal, the longest (5:01) on the album and also the most melodic (for the genre anyway!)

This is a very good first effort.  I had the chance of seeing Deämon live a few weeks ago and their live performance is very good.  They played some new material as well, and I can say that the future does look (sound?) good :)!
