Deinonychus - After The Rain Falls An Empty Sky Remains After the Rain Falls... an Empty Sky Remains

CD 1997 by Guttural Records

Contains: Promo '93


Before I had heard anything else by Deinonychus, my introduction to the band was through this Mexican re-release on cd of the promo cassette from 1993. I was shocked to learn that my little country had a band such as this wandering around, and I was equally shocked to see that it took Mexicans to let the world know it. I also learned later that this was the only release with that particular gripping sound and atmosphere, reminding me somehow of a "structured Abruptum". It's both noisy and composed, and it sounds like it's been recorded in the cave that's presented on the cover. If you ever get the chance to see this one for sale, be sure to pull out your wallet! Even though I could comment on the album's flaws in both performance and production, it is still a promo recording, and I won't pull this one down one bit!

Deinonychus, which had always been the child of Dutch multi-instrumentalist Marco Kehren, has released its self-titled fifth cd, filled with dark metal, weaving elements of gothic and black metal into his own unique melancholic style. Although my personal favorites of Deinonychus are the earlier works The Silence of December and After the Rain Falls an Empty Sky Remains, I quite enjoyed Marco's newest product. Besides his usual additional keyboardist J. Bartels, Marco has been accompanied by William Sarginson (ex-The Blood Divine, ex-Cradle Of Filth, ex-Extreme Noise Terror, and December Moon) on drums. After the release of the album Staff Glover (bass) and Mark Royce (keyboards, ex-Entwined) joined the band, which will make it possible to see Deinonychus on stage in the future. Quality dark gothic metal from Holland.
