After a long wait, Montreal blackened thrash band DIZASTRA offers up their first full-length album “Elder Sun”, now available to massacre fans as of November 22, 2019.
Following their 2015 EP ‘Hell’s Gate’, their new album “Elder Sun” summons unholy ferocity by merging the sounds of black, thrash and melodic heavy metal to coagulate a distinct aural assault.
Featuring their lead single ‘Vae Victus’, an anthem to riding a dragon through Hades, this track combines all the elements of what makes heavy metal what it is. Bringing together shrieking vocals, pummeling drums, cosmic-threatening bass, and electrifying (literally) solos. Other tracks such as ‘The Second Coming’ and ‘Dead ov Night’, steer the listener through sonic waters vicious and dark, assaulting you with wicked verses and melodious choruses. ‘Gnosis’ and ‘Piercing The Veil’ inject the album with a dose of mayhem and speed while ‘Astaroth’ closes the full-length by bringing listeners from the most profound depths to the highest peaks of heaven.
Altogether, the alchemy crafted in “Elder Sun” brings a sound both new and familiar to the votaries of thrash and black metal. There is an undeniable shrill-heaviness to this album that gets paired with a thrilling melody to create a thing as awe-inspiring and terrifying as the flames of our solar star. And much like the forbidding beauty of a westering sky, DIZASTRA’s “Elder Sun” is not to be missed.
