ALL ABOARD THE SWEDISH METAL EX­PRESS! FIRST STOP: TO­TAL DE­STRUC­TION

■ ‘been AWAKE for days on my way to hell,’ is as fit­ting an open­ing dec­la­ra­tion as any for Defcon Zero. Death, de­struc­tion, dev­as­ta­tion – this is the scenery that lit­ters Defcon Zero’s road­side, gazed at through wea­ried eyes. It’s a shame, then, that this apoc­a­lyp­tic aban­don isn’t chan­nelled into the mu­sic, as the swedish met­allers’ fourth al­bum re­verts to Dis­turbed-es­que busi­ness as usual. Day Of Judge­ment at­tempts pump­ing, sky-scrap­ing bal­ladry, but ends up as hol­low as an al­ready eaten donut. but if bone-crunch­ing riffs are your thing, then busi­ness is good, with DRF lay­ing on the high oc­tane rif­fola. Defcon Zero won’t pla­cate your apoc­a­lyp­tic con­spir­acy the­o­rists, but it will sat­isfy your in­ner-pit troll. DOWN­LOAD: DRF. FOR FANS OF: Dis­turbed, Ma­chine head.
