Untimely Demise-City Of Steel
Sonic Unyon Metal
Formed in 2006, Untimely Demise are a Saskatoon, Saskatchewan-based thrash/death trio. Already comparisons have been made to acts like Megadeth, Arch Enemy, Death, At the Gates and Carcass. In addition to having shared the stage with acts like 3 Inches Of Blood, Into Eternity, Toxic Holocaust, Evile, Gama Bomb and Bonded By Blood these Canadians were able to tab ex-Megadeth/King Diamond guitarist Glen Drover to produce and guest on this seven-track debut album. Originally released in 2010, this self-release has already been well received by the media and fans and as such it was picked up for distribution by Sonic Unyon Metal. This re-release does well to showcase why Untimely Demise are more impressive than your run of the mill retro-thrash worship bands out there though. Not only is this stuff firmly rooted in the heavyweights of thrash (Megadeth,Exodus,Testament), but it also comes with a touch here or there of classic, traditional metal like Iron Maiden and Sanctuary. Toss in a nod to German metal and you have over 30 minutes of professional thrash metal. If this wasn't enough they also managed to recruit Kreator's Miland "Mille" Petrozza to sing on City Of Steel! OK, not really but man does Matt Cuthbertson (Guitar, Vocals) ever sound like him on certain tracks. If you just can't seem to ever get enough speed/thrash/death then Untimely Demise will be just what the doctor ordered.
