Where other bands take the blinkers off, DEATH BEFORE DISHONOR take them on. At “Better Ways To Die” not a single step on the sidewalk is taken. DEATH BEFORE DISHONOR do what the name promises, so they try to do everything to make heavy music without taking a breath. They serve us Metalcore in the vein of AGNOSTIC FRONT. And it works quite well: the production is clear and powerful, the tempo is not too fast and therefore evil, the guitars are heavy and the drums knock you down. The voice is a bit too monotonous to be catchy. This would all be tolerable, but DEATH BEFORE DISHONOR forgot it completely to set some own accents. Considering the fact that this band has the rare gift to keep the aggression constantly high, this is wasted potential. To cement the name DEATH BEFORE DISHONOR in the Metal-scene more own character will be needed on the next album.
