Into the Deep Black
DARK REDEEMER were born in the summer of 2018 out of the ashes of Aleph, a band devoted to an obscure, progressive death metal band that released four albums between 2006 and 2018. In spite of the great response, both by the fans and the press (Aleph were the Metal Hammer new Italian band of the year in 2006), and their live performances (with standings like Dismember, Necrodeath, Vision Divine and more), the four deathsters decided it was time to overturn their soundscape: the style of DARK REDEEMER was forged in the encounter of the impactful late 80s-early 90s Swedish Death Metal chainsaw-wall-of-sound of Grave, Dismember and Entombed and the mindset, the structures and the sick harmonies of the coeval U.S. scene (Obituary, Morbid Angel, Immolation), passing through the Great Founding Fathers, Celtic Frost. The outcome of it is an uncompromising, uptempo, relentless sonic assault which trasures the lessons given in the last 20-30 years in extreme metal music. And very old-school, indeed. DARK REDEEMER leaves the listener breathless, dragging him/her into a mighty maelstrom of musical, lyrical violence and malignance. Thus, a return to the roots of the “Sound of Death”, more straightforward than ever and relieved of the progressive divagations which were pivotal in the band’s previous incarnation.
