Ross Dolan of Immolation : Video

If there ever was a musical style that can be linked to the ‘Survival of the Fittest’ credo it would have to be Death Metal.  A style that has remained virtually the same since it’s awakening in the early to mid-1980’s, still flourishes with virtually no mainstream recognition or support. If history has proven anything, the bands that are the most dedicated to their craft always seem to find a way to rise above.  Forming in Yonkers, New York in 1988, Immolation has been fighting the good fight for some 29 years and their latest [and 10th overall] album, ‘Atonement’ (Nuclear Blast), shows them at the top of their game. Finding a collection of songs with a darker onslaught of maelstrom tempos and melodic yet sickly, dissonant orchestration will prove challenging. Finding a band with a more realistic grasp on their almost 30 year journey might be impossible.
