Death Con 1 - _Refuse to Lose_
(Vampire Records, 1996)
by: Adam Wasylyk (3 out of 10)
This 10-tracker did little for me the first time I heard it, and on additional listens, well, my opinion didn't change. To describe the musical direction of the band I would say it's slow paced death metal, with goth and rock influences. The opening riff I swear reminded me of I MOTHER EARTH's "Rain will Fall" Anyway, DEATH CON 1 are musically competent, however most of the songs did little to stir me or keep me interested. The last three tracks ("Suppuku", "Hell is Home" and "Another Day") are all great tracks. I was surprised after hearing the first side of the tape that anything that remained would be better than average. I especially liked "Another Day" in its sad and dreary sounding way. If DEATH CON 1 could produce another demo in the same vein as the aforementioned three songs then they may have something. If you buy it, buy it for the second side of the tape.
