Triton - _Darkroot_
by: Adrian Bromley (2 out of 5)
Was there not enough money to assemble a three-song or four-song demo? I'm just asking, as I can't believe a band submitted a two-song demo to review. Anyway, Massachusetts melodic death metal act Triton sound pretty tight and effective on this demo, but is it really enough to pass judgement on the band? I don't think so. With just over eight minutes of material and two very similar sounding songs, Triton does not sound original or creative enough to have my head spinning and my fists pumping in the air. Pretty generic, if you ask me. Hmm, which of the two songs do I like better? Tough call. I'd have to say the song "Burden", with its cool acoustic guitar breakdown following an intense first two minutes. I'm not ragging on Triton for putting together a two-song demo, I'm just saying that if you want to really make a good first impression, wait until you have a good substantial amount of songs to record with and then submit more material to show off the band's talent. It's guaranteed to get a better response than they did here with a two-song release.
