Dystopia A.D. – Doomsday Psalm (progressive death metal, melodeath)

New Jersey duo Dystopia A.D. have been dropping solid melodeath releases for a while now, but they've really come into their own on this second full-length effort, which sees the band adopting more of a progressive death metal approach. Don't expect fretless bass and a squeeky clean presentation though (for that, you're going to want to check out the Indepth album). What makes Doomsday Psalm stand out, along with the killer songwriting is a gritty aesthetic, which makes its aresenal of crunchy riffs hit even harder.
