Daggers Drawn may be circulating the underground, but their debut will surely elicit a wide spread enthusiasm. There are passages within the six numbers that are reminiscent of Gojira and Machine Head, but that certainly doesn’t mean these Plymouth headbangers are copycats.

One of the most refreshing things about the EP is how it’s full of ambition, right from get-go. DD combine progressive, technical, and death metal influence throughout all of their numbers, though even if sections are rough around the edges, or needlessly haywire, all remains plausible. “New World Order” in particular combines all of their grains together most fluently, and highlights exciting prospects waiting.
