DMDO - Into The Void
Industrial Metal DMDO (Dos Minutos de Odio,Two Minute's Hate in English) is an industrial metal band that was formed in 2010 in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico. It was Miguel Arranz's pastime, as he wrote their first EP Mental wanking, vol. I. Polar in what they're doing now, the EP contained four dark ambient and instrumental tracks, and though it got no promotion, it still managed to rack up a few downloads and some reviews from both friends and critics. Jump to 2013, and a full fledged band formed. Ram Morales kicked in on drums, Sam Lara came in on guitar, and Luis Kampa joined in on bass. And that's how this three piece single came to exist.

The first of the three tracks would be Recurrent Thoughts, and elements from Arranz's time crafting dark ambient music still maintains its presence. Altogether, the sound is quite basic, with nothing really sticking out. It does sound good for what it's doing, but I don't really think the sound distinguishes itself from a lot of other gothrock/industrial metal bands.

Vacuum slows down the pace, and even throws in some piano work. There's a lot of clamoring going on when shit goes hard in the song, and the drum work really builds up to those moments. However, once more, I can't say that I would really give this track another pass through.

I think the last track, a mainly instrumental track called Puercos was the best out of them all. More or less going in a thrash metal direction, the quick pace of the track with the growling involved was pretty kick ass, and really stuck out from the rest. I liked this one.

But, even then, one song can't really save the other two. I don't really have much too complain about, but I can't say there's much I can really praise about this album. It's industrial metal alright, but there's nothing that really sticks out about it. Even though I liked Puercos, the song really didn't do much in the long run. That's not saying there isn't potential in this act, as they do sound good as a whole. They just need to push out something that is creative and unique in its own sense.

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
