Dragged Into Sunlight
Genre: Blackened Doom, Sludge Metal, Death Metal
For Fans Of: Anaal Nathrakh, Coffinworm, Meth Drinker
Dragged Into Sunlight, everyone's (least)favourite purveyors of sonic despair unleashed this bad boy on us last year, and cor blimey it's still a force to be reckoned with. Throw every slow/dark/evil genre you can think of together, kick it in the teeth a couple of times and kill its parents and you'll have a pretty good idea as to what Dragged Into Sunlight sound like. On this album, or rather song (or both??) DiS pour all their nihilism, misanthropy and hatred into one ugly 40 minute dirge. Technically a song in three parts - the first part is surprisingly poignant (though eerie and foreboding) - setting the scene with subdued guitars, pianos and melancholic strings. Fifteen minutes in is where things get gnarly - a gritty sample just before the song lurches into its monstrous 2nd and 3rd parts. It's the typical DiS from here on in, howling/growling vocals, massive guitars and lumbering, feedback drenched doom catharsis.
