DRESDEN: Extinguish the Cross: 7” single

As much as I try to get away from making the comparison, it’s near impossible: hardcore crust in the vein of Tragedy and From Ashes Rise. One thing that sets Dresden apart is the guitar has a more metallic style in the leads. But the rest is very much sticking to the formula that Tragedy brought to the fore years back—broody opening, crashing middle part that picks up the tempo, then they have the fast part in there to give it some urgency. Just to be clear, Dresden are not terrible, it’s just that they don’t deviate from the genre enough to separate themselves from the infinite amount of bands that play this style.
