Dawn Of Defiance - Summoning Death

Dawn Of Defiance is a one man band. Diego Sendra from South America is the musician. Diego has a love of such bands as Megadeth, Slayer, Metallica and Judas Priest and it shows, for the most part in the song, Summoning Death. I don't really hear any Judas Priest in here. The song starts off like it is going to be a slower tune but it breaks into a heavy death metal tune with the deep growling vocals. This is good underground death which I don't hear enough of these days. This song brings me back to the days when death metal was huge in the underground scene. Diego plays all of the instruments and he does a great job. The only thing I don't like is the crash cymbol can be a bit much sometimes, especially in the slower parts of the song.

On the Dawn Of Defiance website, Diego explains the lyrics of Summoning Death, because i'm sure that you can't figure out what he is singing about. Lyrics for this song are included on the website as well as many other things about the band. The website is very well done and has lots of information.

I would recommend that you check out this one man band if you like death metal with a touch of 80's and 90's style metal thrown in. Diego does a good job and seems to be an intelligent and talented musician. You can find Summoning Death on the website and you can also order his cd for only $2.00 on there as well. Dawn Of Defiance will be releasing a full length CD with 8 songs that will be out in late April 2004. Click below to visit the Dawn Of Defiance site.
