Genre: Thrash Metal / Death Metal
Even though their name is supposedly an influence from Edgar Allan Poe, it's still one of the dumber monikers around. Name aside, Dew-Scented are one of the bright spots in the amalgamation of thrash and death metal. In a sorely over saturated genre of At The Gates duplicates, Dew-Scented offer a high quality, relentless attack of the senses. The overall aggressive nature is impressive, but the true standout is the guitar work that twists and turns the songs in a way that, dare I say, is rather original. Don't let the fact all their albums begin with the letter "I" scare you away from this beast of a band. Dew-Scented have an impressive 10 releases to their goofy name, all which contain their bulldozing energy and off-kilter riffs structures which truly define the band.
