German death metal with a touch of the old school
Comments:
Germany's Deserted Fear ring in 2017 with their third album, "Dead Shores Rising". The songs really have that mid to late 90's Swedish death metal feel to them. Where they deviate from that though is the production. A crisp clear production that makes the guitars much too big, the drums too clear & the sound so perfect that it takes away from this album personally for me. I like the older, grittier & grimier production that most death metal bands tend to utilize. That being said, Deserted Fear know their craft & deliver death metal that metal fans can appreciate.
Recommended for fans of:
Morbid Angel, Unleashed, Entombed
