"The Return to Darkness" (Candlelight; 2011)
Reviewed by Mike SOS
India’s premiere metal troupe, Demonic Resurrection, commandeers a grandiose symphonic black metal sound without skimping an ounce of brutality on their 10-track endeavor "The Return to Darkness."
This quintet casts the spirit of the corpse-painted contingent with a flurry of double-bass propelled diabolical rhythms and foreboding guitar runs yet implements a smattering of the finer progressive elements, a la Opeth, into their dark swirls of metallic majesty (“Lord of Pestilence”), creating a groundswell of well-executed extreme metal melding the wares of Dimmu Borgir, Emperor, and Limbonic Art (“Bound by Blood, Fire And Stone”).

A classic. This record will kick your ass.
Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.
So-so. You've heard better.
Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.
Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
