Album Review: Suidakra – “Book Of Dowth”

Posted by Darklord on Wednesday, May 4, 2011 at 6:53 AM (PST)

The Celtic-folk influenced melodic death-metal band SuidAkrA unleashes their new album “Book Of Dowth”. Arkadius Antonik continues to remain as vocalist and guitarist on this mythological metal mayhem along-side Marcus Riewaldt on bass, Marius Pesch on guitar and Lars Wehner on drums. SuidAkrA has had a series of line-up changes and yet manages to deliver great albums. Their last LP, “Crogacht” was very much near perfection and “Book Of Dowth” isn’t that far behind.

“Book Of Dowth” opens up with an instrumental introduction that builds up greatly from bagpipes to angry Celtic drumming and guitars all together generating the sound for the listener to visualize the tale. The sound quality is superb and can arguably be superior to “Crogacht”. “Dowth 2059” is an excellent tune about a scientist who discovers the book of black and witnesses the knowledge and history it contains. The book starts to emanate ominous and corruptive energy. This track is a creative way to start “Book Of Dowth”.

How many of you Metal Rioters out there have gone to your local record store of choice and picked up a new metal album solely based on the art that graces its cover? I have found many a hidden gems and a few utter disappointments but there are few things greater in this world than gently cracking open the liner notes for the first time as the smell of ink and paper washes over you.

In the world of iTunes and Pandora, the art form that is the album cover is slowly dying. But we’re here to remind  you that in the world of heavy metal, the art of the album cover is alive and well! So each Tuesday we’ll present to you the best album covers of the week to declare what we all already know – Heavy Metal is art.

So welcome this week’s episode of: KICK ASS ALBUM COVERS OF THE WEEK!!! (insert blistering guitar shred here). We had an awesome showing last week and we would like to congratulate Otep on her most kick ass album cover with last week’s “ATAVIST”. To check out this week’s selections and vote, head on over here.
