Album Review: TODAY THE SUN DIES -Torment


Reviewed by: Dave Wolff
Posted on July 2014

To put it simply, Today The Sun Dies is brutality personified. There are only four tracks on this EP but they are more than enough to leave me wanting to hear more of this band. Getting together between 2010 and 2011, they were noticed by Terrorizer with the release of their debut demo, and they appear to be receiving an increasing amount of press attention as they continue, having shared the stage with the likes of Hatebreed and Severe Torture. Little time is wasted getting things underway when the first song of their debut EP kicks in, and there is little curtailing the fury until the last song concludes. Today The Sun Dies was formed of ex-members of active Newcastle, England bands, and it goes without saying that their previous experience shows on this recording. The songwriting and musicianship are tight and on the mark throughout, and there is some subtle atmosphere and samples from the movie Hellraiser II to provide the listener with a menacing air (the latter is in the final track “Unnecessary Surgery”). You should be hearing more from the band as time goes on, so keep your eyes and ears peeled.
