DUSH „Ancient Cities”” CD-EP
  self-released 2008. Our rating [7/10]

It starts out very subtly, with a consistent bass undertone. Slowly, as a vigorous powerhouse escalates, a beautifully disguised guitar enters the mix, and a slightly classical whisper is added by the synths. A combination that’s out of the ordinary, so distinctive it has its own name: Bronze, the latest genre of music combining metal and melodic vocals with a touch of industrial sound.

This new age metal band has been together for only two years, originating from anywhere but Montreal, where the members all currently reside. Dush has managed to create a sound that’s both original and mainstream and can be enjoyed by older and younger generations alike.
