Dethlehem: Started out as a A D&D campaign

Dethlehem - Maelstrom Of The Emerald Dragon

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!»

Om Ulf Backstrøm (4493 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
