Dungeon Crawl - Roll for Your Life - Album Review - Thrash Metal from San Francisco, California, USA

Today we are featuring the promising thrash metal band, Dungeon Crawl, from San Francisco, California, USA, with their first studio album, Roll for Your Life (2021), along with its character, style, story, and potential.

Dungeon Crawl started their careers with an EP called, "+1 Demo" in 2019, and "Roll For Your Life" is their first official studio album in their careers, which came to my attention about a month ago. The album is an absolute headbanger from the beginning to finish, offering the world a fine example of 80s thrash metal.

First of all, we must accept the fact that Dungeon Crawl is still a new band with an established but also familiar sound to our ears. The album has the traditional thrash metal sound with today's standards, deserves credit for this successful outcome. The personality choice, on the other hand, in Roll For Your Life album is subjective. Some people might be very happy hearing this old-school thrash metal sound, while others would expect to hear something better. In this case, I am one of those who enjoyed this beautiful album. It was a great experience even though there wasn't anything too innovative in it.

After listening to the entire album a few times, the first thing that came to my mind was the main origins of this music. I'd call it Motörhead making old-school thrash metal. They have the attitude, energy, and the necessary vocal character of Lemmy Kilmister in their DNA, while the band was talented enough to execute the idea flawlessly. I loved the energy level, dynamics, attitude, vocal blend, and overall balancing a lot in this album, could make an unforgettable night for their audience once performed live on stage.

The band musically doesn't have any complexity as we used to hear from other modern metal bands of our era. On the contrary, they have decided to continue with the 80s and 90s thrash metal approach as it is. In this case, hearing good old-school thrash metal is always a fantastic thing, yet I can't say I was super impressed by the musicality. They were rather quite linear, narrow, and not fresh-sounding enough for me, which would be the only weakness I can think of.

Dungeon Crawl deserves reception from the thrash metal world for their work in Roll For Your Life, and one way or another it will. I personally enjoyed the album from start to finish, offers enough quality in everything with beautiful nostalgic vibes.

When I take all these into account, I'd like to say that I've had a good time listening to Dungeon Crawl. Roll For Your Life is a fine album with good old thrash metal, an exciting step forward in their professional careers.
