When speaking about brutal death metal, very few names from the UK come to mind while it’s transatlantic neighbour boasts way too many names to count. Apart from a few bands like Amputated and Cerebral Bore, I haven’t really come across death metal of the brutal variety from this part of the world. So when Dawn of Chaos’s first and only full length in 15 years, ‘The Need to Feed’ landed in my inbox, I had to check it out. While some may argue that this album is not truly brutal death metal, the elements of brutality and gore are ever present. What sets this band apart though, is the way they marry Bolt Thrower like hooky riffs, dissonant melody and brutal death metal elements, to create a hybrid sound that is familiar yet fresh.
