Dammercide - _Link_
(Negatron Records, 2000)
by: Pedro Azevedo (6 out of 10)
Part of a pack consisting of Italy's Negatron Records' first four releases, Dammercide have made an album that may not be remarkable but constitutes a reasonable starting point for band and label alike. Glancing at all of the four Italian bands whose albums Negatron are releasing, Iblis' and Glacial Fear's outputs are also quite reasonable, and only Zona turned out to be rather sub-standard [they are all reviewed in this issue]. Dammercide play thrashy Swedish-influenced metal, and generally do so pretty well. There is, however, a certain tendency for the band to include clean vocals that don't mix too well with the better, aggressive side of their music. Also, the occasional keyboard or acoustic passages seem a bit misplaced and contrived. Nevertheless, although not groundbreaking in any respect and not quite as memorable or exciting as the output of their Swedish counterparts, _Link_ is still capable of keeping its head above the water.
