The Everdawn - Poems - Burn the Past

Posted on Saturday, February 26, 2011

The Thrashy Black/Death on this CD is very often amazing. These guys have a real gift for writing catchy rhythms. I assure you that you’ll remember this after a single listen. And I’m still discovering new bits of interest after many listens. My only complaint is not even with the band at all, but with Metal Blade. As with all of their licensed releases, the packaging is terrible. It looks as if they just scanned the original booklet and traycard into their computer and then overlaid the Metal Blade stuff over the old Invasion Records info. The song titles are even partially obscured on the back of the traycard by some fuckin’ skull/sword graphic. And since there is no lyric sheet, I guess Metal Blade must not want anyone to know the names of half their songs. If I were The Everdawn, I’d be pissed. They’re a talented band and deserve better treatment than this. A note to Metal Blade: For future licensed (or otherwise) releases, hire me to do the layouts, then everyone will love them.
