Cloak-The Burning Dawn

Feels like a very appropriate album cover and title for how things are going in the world.  Just a wasteland charred remains.  It’s honestly how things feel these days.

Cloak reminds me a awful lot of Tribulation minus the goth-inspired stage presence.  Theirs is a death metal sound, but it feels more rooted in the classic rock ‘n roll vibe than your traditional or grind death metal sound.  This feels like a really good gateway album for someone wanting to explore death metal.  It is very accessible sound-wise and has quite a bit of engaging melodic moments thrown in with the more aggressive riffs.  All in all, this is just a very capably produced album albeit one that never reaches those truly inspiring moments.  Good, but not great.
