Daemusinem Domine Empire
Released: 2002, ColdBlood Industries
Not much to say about Daemusinem’s newest effort, save that it’s been done a thousand times, and much better, before. If I was forced to compare this band to anything, I’d say it has some Satyricon, some old In Flames and a touch of At The Gates’ melodies. Nothing too special. This Italian outfit rose from the remains of prior bands named Uncreated and Detestor, and then the drummer, Massimo Altomare, is nothing less than Black Flame’s old drummer.
The music is pretty much what I described above, a mix of blackish death metal with melodic interludes that sort of fail to blend into the music properly and sometimes seem pretty flat for my taste. My final and major problem with this recording is definitely the vocals. These guys really need to improve in this department, maybe then they’ll be able to catch the ear of more than a few persons (myself included).
In all, I would avoid this CD unless you want a fun listen of what In Flames should have as a base for their music.
