                Bands come and bands go, it seems to be the endless cycle that groups go through. Following the dissolution of Aleph in 2018, from those ashes rose Dark Redeemer as the Italian death metal band set about consolidating their sound to rise like a phoenix delivering their debut album ‘Into the Deep Black’.

                Dark Redeemer have delivered an album of professional standards, hardly surprising considering these are veterans of the scene with Aleph. The band know the sound they want and they grab the bull by the death metal horns. This sound is delivered through an old school lens, tweaked through a decent modern production which allows every instrument to clearly heard like sharp surgical steel. Tracks such as ‘Swallow the Cross’, ‘Killing Ritual’ and ‘Burn Under the Blackened Sky (Valley of Death)’ drive forward with all the old school goodness of Obituary, Morbid Angel and Autopsy hammering it out with early Entombed and Dismember as pummelling double bass drums thunder behind some chainsaw guitaring and guttural growls.

                This is not highly polished death metal that has been sanitised of life, what the listener gets here is some excellent old school death metal which never lets up and you can’t ask for more than that can you?
