The Blood Dance
My Kingdom Music/Chaos Records
My knowledge of Mexican bands has always been limited to black metal, thanks to Impiety's Mexican lineup, opening the gates to bands like Warfield and Raped God to me. Majestic Downfall is therefore the first death/doom metal band that I encounter, and their second full length album, The Blood Dance, has surprised me with the quality of the music on it, to say the least.
The personal favourite of death/doom metal has been Australia's The Dead, with their slightly progressive take on the genre, but what Majestic Downfall presents on their latest offering is something more straightforward and emotional, and would perhaps please fans of bands such as Draconian. With the album opener The Blood Dance and the soothing acoustic guitars, it would almost trick listeners into thinking that this would be a light-hearted journey…
