Can doom and thrash coexist in one band? Does the mere existence of either genre negate the other? Dream Death don’t seem to think so. I have to admit, I really struggled to hear the doom elements of this band. At face value, this is an 80’s thrash album and very “Slayer” like in sound. Upon further inspection, it’s the riffs that are the major doom element of this band. They’re just sped up. There are some straight up thrash riffs in there too though.  Now does that make them a doom or thrash band? I think they might fall more into thrash but who’s really to say. It’s a great album, whatever it is.
