Dew Scented have carved a slice from the thrash metal pie out and claimed it as theirs for nearly two decades, despite being plagued by numerous lineup upheavals with lead singer Leif Jensen trudging on to remain as the sole survivor. Jensen returns with another new batch of bandmates in tow on the band’s latest effort ICARUS, an 11-track mixed bag affair providing a serviceable yet forgettable melodic death metal meets angry thrash metal amalgamation. Spearheaded by Leif’s trademark howl, the German unit presents a sturdy yet lackluster hybrid of The Haunted, Kreator, and Lamb of God (“Destined to Collapse”) that is flawlessly executed and superbly captured yet lacks the intrinsic dynamic drive to push past the point of pedestrian. -Mike SOS
