BAND DIRE PERIL
ALBUM THE EXTRATERRESTRIAL COMPENDIUM
LABEL DIVEBOMB RECORDS
OUT Nov 9th, 2018
OUR RATING 80/100
Formed in 2009, the band made three EPs: "Astronomical Minds", "Queen of the Galaxy" and "Through Time and Space", and proceeded to play live.
In 2015 Ashcraft decided to take a step back and take a hard look at where the band was headed. Inspired by science fiction, especially classic sci-fi movies, Dire Peril regrouped as a double piece; Ashcraft was joined by singer John Yelland, and together they began working on the debut album titled “The Extraterrestrial Compendium,” available on November 9, 2018 via DIVEBOMB RECORDS.
This album is interesting, really various and with a great mix of classic metal, thrash and power metal.
Thy'are able to be so melodic, like in first slice of THE VISITOR or more catchy like in QUEEN OF THE GALAXY.
