DUSK
DUSK
Mourning... Resurrect
(Lost Disciple Records)
64:56min

I was unable to get useful infos concerning DUSK, except that this band hailed from Wisconsin and vanished without a trace around 1998. Thanks to Rich Fatalo (who runs Lost Disciple Records) however, we have now the chance to (re)discover this extraordinary band, through this reissue of all their recordings, two MCDs and one compilation track put together on one CD. DUSK played Doom / Death Metal and I can't help but to find their music absolutely impressive, to the point the reason they never got major success totally eludes me. I can equal this release with the absolute masterpiece that is the CATHEDRAL "Forest Of Equilibrium" album, with the proviso DUSK were way more bent to Death Metal considering the low and deep vocals courtesy of Steve Crane and the sometimes crunchy guitar rhythms similar to those found on OBITUARY albums, add also a stronger sense for catchiness that the English doomsters didn't have yet at the beginning of their career. DUSK erected fantastic sonic architectures, and the music here comes out as very graphic, evoking vast melancholic landscapes, crumbling ruins and haunted graveyards under a pale moon. The heaviness of this record is beyond belief, thanks to a fat production giving room especially to bass and drums, so prepare yourselves to be splashed to the ground by the sheer power delivered here. DUSK achieved the exploit to sound very intense without speeding the pace too much, and gave way to very emotional music without losing view from the rage and aggression needed to content even the most eager of the Metal fans, call this a brutal delicacy if you want. I can only express my enthusiasm here, you have to get this majestic (the only relevant word really) album without delay, I can promise you certainly will not regret it. It is not every day that such a classic album is released, so don't lose the chance! MONUMENTAL!
