The latest release from Sydney duo Suburban Dark would be better described as a collection of soundscapes rather than songs. Death From Below is filled to the brim with deep, dark synthetic sounds which could very easily have been pulled from a dark, futuristic sci-fi film.
Scattered throughout the record are a few tracks which would much more fundamentally be recognised as songs. These tracks welcome aboard a selection of Australia’s finest MC talents such as, MC Jewson (Thundamentals) and TELL (Mantra & Grey Ghost).
Whilst the more traditional tracks are of a high quality they simply fail to draw you back in as strongly as the soundscapes, which are the more memorable portion of the record.
