Din Of Awakening - demo (2012)


Year: 2012
Genre: Raw Atmospheric Black Metal
Country: USA

Track List:
  1. Unbirth
  2. Becoming Flesh, Embracing Death
  3. Begotten
Anarcho-primitivist black metal from Newburgh, NY. The project has apparent connections with the ALF. The music of DoA is self-labelled as "Haunting Metaphysical Black Metal" with lyrics based on themes of moon/nature worship, green anarchist philosophy, and isolation (and yes, like in case with this Costa Rican project, DoA was also inspired by the 1990 movie Begotten). Personally I wasn't that impressed by this demo (or maybe I simply didn't understand it from the first listening?..), but I'm sure that some of my readers would find it interesting and promising. According to Michael (the man behind the project), the second demo (drastically different material) will be released soon on Fallen Empire records in the U.S and Mordgrimm in the U.K/Europe. Well... let's wait.

Listen to the whole demo:

  1. Ohh, that image is utterly disturbing. Figures this comes from Newburgh - what a dark hole for music that town is...

  2. It's always good to have some ALF supporters in music. Specially Metal, as hardcore is more common to be pro ALF.
