NAWABS OF DESTRUCTION Rising VengeanceHot
If I was asked a couple of days ago to name one metal band from Bangladesh I would most certainly have struggled to come up with an answer, but that was before I discovered the debut album from Nawabs Of Destruction. They are a technical, melodic death metal band from Dhaka, Bangladesh and their debut album Rising Vengeance, which is being released through the Spanish label Pathologically Explicit Recordings, is definitely one to watch out for. It’s a remarkable strong debut album actually. Although the material is both technical and complex, it never sounds technical for the sake of technicality if you know what I mean. These guys use their outstanding musicianship to their advantage when it comes to composing excellent songs, tasteful arrangements and beautiful atmosphere. I must also that the production is very good. The vocals are mostly in the deep growling landscape, but with a few touches of more screaming style vocals and even some clean vocals here and there. In the beautiful atmospheric parts created by guitar leads, harmonies and orchestral arrangements you can clearly hear that they have incorporated elements of music typical for their region of the world which gives the album this exotic feel not a million miles away from a band like Aeternam. This is in particular evident in the track ‘The Evil Within’. Enough said, Rising Vengeance is simply a damn good album that I can highly recommend to any fan of epic, atmospheric death metal.
