Dagger Of Sacrifice - “Dagger Of Sacrifice” (Graceless Recordings 2012)
Fucking shit, this is an insane release. Dagger Of Sacrifice is a funeral doom metal band from Norway, and by golly if this isn’t one of the most impressive funeral doom releases I’ve ever heard. Let’s see, it sounds like it was recorded in a toilet, but the everything is so vile and evil the production adds to the atmosphere. Plodding doom riffs and tin can drums tell you that this will make you want to die, but there are melodic leads that bring you along and make you feel like there is hope. Until the oppressive guttural vocals tell you otherwise, maybe you should just kill yourself and get it over with; because the two loooooong tracks on here (repeated on both sides of the tape) aren’t going to shine any lights for you.
Apparently this was recorded back in 2003, and somehow a label in Tennessee got a hold of it and made it available to the masses. Well at least 200 of the masses, because that’s how many copies of this are floating around. If you can score a copy, I highly suggest it, it’s so choice.
