Damaar was a short lived War Metal act hailing from Lebanon, only putting out a single release. While the genre is known for it's extremely dissonant and abrasive sound, I feel like almost all bands to this day fail to capture the pure hatred put through in this 20 minute demo. Which could be very much related to being from a war torn country themselves.

Was not ready for this at all. On one hand this is just a very standard metalcore album with no real redeeming qualities, but not particularly offensive apart from the quite grating vocals, on the other however this formula is topped with a constant barrage of stock ass Halloween sound effects, incredibly corny, stupid and aggressing.


Gave me a headache.

Might I add that the vocals are mixed much too low, can barely make out what she's saying in a few verses.

Thanks for adding the album cover for the Friisk album. That was fast. I actually don't know the proper way to do this given copyright issues.
