Sun Descends

Sun Descends was formed in 2000 by vocalist Mem Von Stein, onetime singer for the cult German thrash band Exumer. Since his work that that band (on the 1986 album Possessed By Fire) he has lent his hand to several bands of various styles, finally deciding to relocate to New York City and resume his love of old-school thrash metal. A band was put together and a demo recorded in 2001 (later released as an EP, Tide In The Affairs Of Men), but Von Stein decided to recruit an entirely different lineup, the new band releasing an EP in 2004, then a CD compiling both EPs (Tide And Law), followed finally by their first proper full-length album, Incinerating The Meek. Von Stein’s old Exumer roots clearly show here, the focus here being retro punkish thrash metal. It’s a bit raw in places, with a thin production and rather messy drumming marring the overall sound a bit, but Von Stein’s vocals are forceful and the songs are aggressive and energetic.
