"Damage Done" is the much-anticipated sixth full length
album from Gothenburg's own Dark tranquillity, a band that has
become an institution within the realms of extreme Metal, seeing
that they deserve full credit for originally kicking off the
stylistic wave of melodic Death Metal which has become
established and frenetically followed all throughout the world
in the meantime.
During their 13 years of existence, Dark tranquillity have
always tried to constantly expand their musical borders and
stray away from already-conquered territory, and "Damage Done"
is certainly no exception to their own artistic goal, being a
truly diverse affair showcasing a host of new approaches and
inspirational sources. Compared to the electronically-tinged
approach of "Haven" (2000) or the laid-back, lush melancholia of
the (Swedish) Grammy-nominated entity "Projector" (1999),
"Damage Done" is more technical and intense in feel; a direct
and solid sound, yet with lots of complex arrangements and sonic
structures emerging from below the surface.
While not by any means being a sheepish "back to the
roots" album, some of the aggressive aesthetics present in Dark
tranquillity's earlier work have resurfaced, giving birth to
some faster passages, pounding and inherently catchy throughout.
From the relentless thrash-o-rama of opener "Final Resistance"
to the sombre closing tones of "Ex Nihilo" (the first
instrumental in the band's history), "Damage Done" runs the full
gamut and showcases a hungry and confident band that presents
absolutely no signs of musical exhaustion or willingness to
descend from their position as a leading creative force in the
Recorded with long term producer Fredrik Nordström at
Gothenburg's famous Studio Fredman facilities, the masterfully
written and flawlessly executed eleven new creations on "Damage
Done" are determined to fully please the passionate melodic
Death Metal following as well as bringing new listeners into the
very unique and charismatic sound of Dark tranquillity. Watch
out for the band to embark on a massive string of tours
following the release of this masterpiece of a new album: The
damage is done, my friends!
