MAJESTIC DOWNFALL – …When Dead
One man death/doom metal here from Mexico’s Majestic Downfall, as "…When Dead" is the fourth studio album since their 2006 inception. Jacobo Córdova is the mastermind behind these 5 tracks – most of which are a minimum of 11-15 minutes. Draconian and My Dying Bride come up when taking in these songs – heavy, melancholic, and dark with occasional spirited guitar passages to give life to the death/doom template. "The Brick, The Spirit" and "The Rain of the Dead" cement themselves because of smart construction, knowing when to be more melodic or when to be foreboding.
Ardent followers of the early 90’s scene, Majestic Downfall is your savior.
