The metal scene is an ever-evolving environment, and sometimes oversaturated. There are times when gems that sparkle from the seeming pile of dirt shines through, and we think technical death metal newcomers Zero Dawn will be a gem in that pile of dirt. The group is a 2020 newly formed band, one that means serious business. Zero Dawn has just released their second track “Obsolete” which is a pulverizing 5 minute track of sheer riffage and brutal vocals. Yes, we said riffage. The thing about this band is the guitar work is what captivated us, not even mentioning the precise percussion and earth shattering vocals that add even more to the mix. The transitions are very clean and creative compared to what we’ve often heard in the genre as well. The songwriting is well done – some sections would be carried by a fitting atmosphere of harmonies, and some fittingly would be help emphasize vocals by adding a layer of intensity.
