With their best work to date, Darkened have solidified their position at the head of the modern death metal pack, presenting equal amounts of atmospheric melody and addictively fun heaviness.

Bad English

Just listened, somehow what new we can say about DM, all has been said and talked. Good song writing here, some guitar solos, more ''calmer'' vocals. Good banger.
I stand whit Ukraine and Israel. They have right to defend own citizens.

Good Old School mid tempo swedish Death metal! Nothing new just a damn solid release! Sound side they remind me of a “darkened” version of Gorefest (pun intended) which is no bad thing at all

A Nice Guy
Sadly for me death metal has been slightly slacking this year, but this is one of those fresh band's on the OSDM scene right now that have properly got things right and you can actually rely on them bringing a top quality release like this.

Does anyone think it's odd that both Darkened and Darkend released new albums on the same day?
