Five guys from Spain took on Gothenburg Metal in 2002 and celebrated it after that under the name DARKNESS BY OATH. This sounds quite nice so far, and you could basically say that also about their 3rd CD ´Near Death Experience´. Could? Yes, if this annoying singer wasn´t there who tortures his vocal cords but still rather sounds like a coughing frog during a sexual act with a grater. In case you have tried it yourself - I mean this style of singing, not the sexual act with a grater - your vocal cords would start bleeding anyway. So it´s not the lack of commitment, it´s simply sounding - well, strange. Naturally this is a question of taste, it´s not quite mine, though. When I just ignore the screeches, I can indeed hear a cutting-edge piece of Melodic Death Metal which doesn´t have to fear the competition of it´s Swedish ancestors. A great song is the instrumental ´Holloworld´ where the clear and powerful production becomes most evident too. Very good, guys! Put one more song like that on the next album, give your singer something to heal his throat, and then you´ll easily receive 10 elks!
