Scenario II
A New Dawn
Company: Independent
Release: 2017
Genre: Death
Reviewer: Greg Watson
Published: 1/22/2017

Post apocalyptic death/thrash with a few surprises
Comments:
Scenario II is a band that I had no familiarity with and after a listen to "A New Dawn", I was completely blown away by them. Possessing both aggression and beauty, Scenario II has some moments where they sound like Epica with some symphonic elements plus death & clean vocals. But the symphonic moments are atmospheric and what really shines is an incredible mix of death and thrash riffs intertwined with very melodic and impressive guitar work. The more I listen to this album, the more I feel the desolation & coldness of the post apocalyptic world created by Scenario II.
