DEAD MAN`S HAND
The Combination
(Agonia Records)
31:12min

The new industrial revolution has arrived and it seems that every European record company is trying to earn its coin with the current unstoppable wave of new Death / Thrash Metal acts. But finally the time has come to realize that not every piece of Black coal – even if we are talking about true Norwegian one – can be transferred into a blazing diamond – a matter of fact that is fully applicable for the DEAD MAN’S HAND debut. “The Combination” is an aggressive piece of Thrash Metal with parallels to their Swedish brothers DISFEAR / THE HAUNTED but that’s it – nearly everything has been said in one single sentence. The combo which is raging from Oslo since 2005 is not in the position to set standards in any way or to make their music somehow unique. So it’s one of those records which aren’t dropping to minus 263 degrees on the quality scale but which also cannot impress any listener even if he is listening to this style for only a short while. www.dmh-metal.com, www.agoniarecords.com
