Crucified Dawn - _Crucified Dawn_
by: Adrian Bromley (3 out of 5)
Eek! Where's the production on this demo? Was this recorded in a garbage can? Who is Crucified Dawn? And why are they so violently in your face? Hold on to your hats, kiddies; prepare for the unexpected. This totally unsafe death metal band grinds and grooves like a bat out of hell. Mix the sharpness of Obituary's metal influence with the insanity of Brutal Truth (though not as insane as Kevin Sharp and the now defunct BT crew). While Crucified Dawn may play music that appeals to most death metal fans, they have that extra little nuance of oddity that makes this an interesting listen and may make some metal fans scratch their heads. Who says death metal has to follow a formula? Fuck it up sometimes and you'll hear results -- if you're good. Good job, Crucified Dawn. By the way, the second track ("The Hand That Bleeds You") rules.
