The World Died Yesterday

Rated 4/5 (80%) (6 Votes)

The World Died Yesterday is the debut album from Greece's Dissolve and comes 12 years after the band was originally conceived. Thrash Metal is the name of the game and it is of the modern variety, though thankfully avoids core territory. The guitars sound down-tuned and the vocals are angry, though in a more "miffed" than "pissed off" way. The songs are very similar to one another, especially the vocal lines, so either the vocalist has a limited range or just really likes singing in one key. I don't want to make The World Died Yesterday out to be bad, because it isn't, and album highlight "Decolorize" proves that Thrash can have groove without being "Groove" Metal and features some excellent lead work. The rest of the album is decent though, as I indicated, a bit generic. It is a concern that, after 12 years, this is what Dissolve has come up with but on the other hand, The World Died Yesterday is self-released and the band has gone through some lineup changes so a little slack seems appropriate. I hear some potential and hope Dissolve can take the next step. In the meantime, if you like the stuff Hatriot and Exodus have been releasing recently you might want to give The World Died Yesterday a spin.
