SAINT OF DISGRACE – For My Pain demo

Forming in 2009, "For My Pain" is the third demo from Finnish melodic death metal sextet Saint Of Disgrace. This 3 song effort whirls by in a scant 11 minutes and 24 seconds, but the addictiveness will win over all who miss older melodic death metal. Strong guitar melodies in the old In Flames vanguard, sprinkled with rough, sandpaper death vocals (with bonus feminine clean work from the keyboardist) and a rhythm section that knows when to go full force and when to lay back for the groove sake. The title cut features some cool keyboard strains as the guitars churn over the top- include a half time tempo change that will set audiences on fire, and closer "Epica" features a beauty and the beast approach with layers of progressive movements against another catchy death metal setting before a tranquil, military march bridge section mutates into heaviness once again.
Let this be the final demo from Saint Of Disgrace- we need a full length urgently, as these 3 songs do not feed my addiction enough.
