Heavydeath – In Circles We Die


Heavy… ish

Released by Iron Bonehead Productions (Website; Facebook) on 25 November 2016

Review by Jason Guest

Formed in 2013, in 2014 Swedish trio Heavydeath released no less than nine demos and a single. Not a band to waste time, their first full length, Eternal Sleepwalker, was released in early 2015 and was followed by three further EPs and another demo in 2015 and one more EP in 2016. Being such a prolific band, you’d expect their releases to mark a distinct incline in their progress. Sadly, that’s not the case. Eternal Sleepwalker did very little. There were the compulsory heavy riffs and shifts in tempo and feel and the menacing vocals but there was nothing that really took a bite. And so it goes for In Circles We Die. It’s heavy, and it’s darkly oppressive and it’s well executed but like Cross Vault’s EP reviewed above, it’s missing the power that doom demands. And at over an hour long, it quickly becomes tedious – much like the “subtle” use of a swastika on the cover…
