Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania’s city center is located on the delta between the Monongahela and Allegheny rivers, which form the Ohio River. The delta is called the Golden Triangle. The band Dethlehem is from Pittsburgh and is by many fans regarded as a Golden Metal Band.
12 Inch PR. are a new public relations company specializing in vinyl releases, and today they served us the above mentioned band Dethlehem. Actually Dethehem started out as a A D&D campaign that came to life and formed a metal band.
Dethlehem’s 4th full-length album Maelstrom Of The Emerald Dragon delivers a very complex melodic death metal but yet accessible! The track Mindflyer,
Hailing from Ghorusalem (it’s actually Pittsburgh, PA, but please bear with us), the warriors of Dethlehem have travelled through time and space to do battle against dragons, wizards, warlocks, leviathans, shape-shifters, and a shit ton of other things that needed to die.
Despite the gimmick, it would be a big mistake to think that Dethlehem’s sound is no more than a witless joke. Truth be told, once you enter their realm you’ll face some fair amount of epic melodic death metal, as the fourth full-length from the United States-based four-piece, Maelstrom Of The Emerald Dragon, harnesses the spirit of old whilst drawing from the power of modern death metal, creating a multi-layered sound that becomes even more compelling if you go full Dungeons & Dragons with the Story Mode edition.
Dethlehem have truly stepped their game up here as they’re sounding tighter and more technical than ever, presenting a more progressive take on death metal and covering a lot of ground on an album that will make you want to bang your head while beating the living shit of magical creatures.
On the new album, drummer Overlord Brom comments: «This is our absolute best musical effort since we’ve been a band. We formed our party of warriors back in 2008, and we’ve been going on adventures ever since! While the stakes are high for all of our campaigns, Maelstrom Of The Emerald Dragon proved to be our most difficult yet! There are two versions of the album, Story Mode and Music Only. If you are into learning about the backstory, and like nerdy/funny audio skits, then check out Story Mode! If you just want to hair whip in the car, and skip all the filler, then go for the Music Only version!»
