Heavydeath’s latest offering (as of this review’s writing, at least; give ’em another two months and they’ll probably have another one out) is Dark Phoenix Rising, a ~40-minute pack of five songs done in Heavydeath’s heavy & deathly style. Strong riffs, big recording acoustics, powerful bass presence, and bone-thumping drums are the focus here, though there’s also some sparingly-used deep growls worked in to good effect.

Sweden’s doom trio Heavydeath are one busy band. Formed in 2013, they have released seven demos, one EP, and one full length. Considering that all their releases have been top notch, that’s quite an accomplishment. Neither technical nor progressive, they stick to meat and potatoes doom with a hint of death metal thrown in for good measure. Now with their second full length, Dark Phoenix Rising, the band continues on its path of monolithic heaviness.

Sweden’s Heavydeath have returned with a new recording that continues the mixture of doom and death metal of previous releases and this is a review of their 2015 album “Phoenix Rising” which was released by Caligari Records.

A very distorted yet heavy bass guitar sound starts off the album along with some drum beats which also leads up to more of a doom metal direction which also uses a decent amount of melodies and when vocals are utilized they are in more of a death metal growling direction and most of the tracks are very long and epic in length.

9/10

Chceme-li se bavit o kapele HEAVYDEATH, musíme zcela nutně začít někde jinde. Psát o HEAVYDEATH a nezmínit přitom jméno Runemagick totiž dle mého soudu dost dobře není možné. HEAVYDEATH je uskupením, které vzniklo teprve v roce 2013. První demonahrávku s názvem „Post Mortem In Aeternum Tenebrarum“ tito Švédi vydali o rok později, tedy v roce 2014. A kromě toho vydali v tomto roce šest dalších demonahrávek, jeden singl, jedno EP, a aby toho nebylo málo, tak i jednu kompilačku. Plodný loňský rok jako by byl jakousi předehrou a předstupněm pro velkolepé finále, kterou představuje letošní album „Eternal Sleepwalker“.
