4.0 out of 5 stars Power of metal, 28 Oct 2003
This review is from: Damage Done (Audio CD)
After thirteen years together, Gothenburg's Dark Tranquillity have unleased this, their sixth full-length opus, on a relatively unsuspecting public. After all, while Iowa might have topped the UK album charts, I would imagine that few can stomach the gut-wrenching ferocity that makes up a DT album. Marrying frantic double-bass drumwork to hyperactive guitar runs and swirling keyboard motifs, all topped with throaty vocals that sound like an Orc on acid, DT are heavy. Providing a fix for those who crave true heavy metal, DT are more theatrical than Shadow's Fall in their use of Gothic pianos, but heavier (and less cheesy) than Cradle of Filth. Iraqi soldiers may be tortured using Metallica - they'd soon find out the real whereabouts of everyone from Saddam to Lord Lucan if they used Dark Tranquillity. Anything but tranquil.
