Damnation Plan – Reality Illusion

damnation

After a brief introduction, settling the listener into the album’s atmosphere, “Beyond These Walls” bursts from the speakers with a riff straight out of Gothenburg. Combined with the by-the-books growls of co-vocalist Tommy Tuovinen, this makes for a perfect headbang-worthy opening. Despite the ferociousness of some of the riffs, this record knows when to reign in the ferocity and let the melodies do the talking. It commands respect and owns an essense of maturity. The melodies themselves are well-crafted and get easily stuck in your head, without being insipid or annoying. This is most notable on the crooning chorus of “Rise Of The Messenger”, where Asim and Tommy pull off some gorgeous harmonies.
