Days of Mourning - _Reborn as the Enemy_
(Upheaval Records, 1998)
by: Adrian Bromley (8 out of 10)
From the ashes of the hard working hard core outfit Dirge comes the blistering, head-down, grindcore/hardcore outfit Days of Mourning. Intense is putting this mildly. From the get go, these psycho mutha-fuckers kick out the grooves with a killer assortment of brutally potent numbers that could easily decapitate an unsuspecting listener. While the production is mediocre (I had the same problem with Dirge's debut disc _Hazing Ritual_), the band forges forward and picks up steam and momentum with such hard-hitters as opener "Breathe Life Into a Dying Day", "Purity of Life" and "Submission 786". Great live band, too. If you can handle the vicious grooves and downright lethal vocals, then Days of Mourning needs to be in your record collection. Ace job here.
