Formed in Portland USA back in 2007, Von Doom have released their latest single entitled From fear. Von Doom have already opened for some big-name bands in the past, and are surely set to do more of the same in the future. Their single From Fear is a re-vamped melodic metal with a huge portion of Scandinavian metal thrown in the mix for good measure.
The track reminds me of the early to mid 90’s when Swedish melodic death metal was the big thing, with bands such as In Flames, Soilwork and Hatesphere were making big names for themselves amongst the rebirth Thrash of thrash. The band seem to have a modern spin on both thrash and melodic death metal, which is quite an interesting mix, seeing as the two are not usually mixed together, but it does give Von Doom a unique sound that I can’t compare to any other band!
From Fear is laden with superbly orchestrated, thundering bass-lines, intricate, technical and melodic guitar riffs, Viking hammered drums and excellent vocals to mould the blend perfectly. I shall be watching Von Doom carefully in the future to see what their next musical genius will be.
