Hamburg, Germany’s heralds of metal-encased hardcore, DAGGER THREAT, share the debut of their official video for the single, “Crooked Mirror“.
The track hails from the five-piece street crew’s newly released full-length album for BDHW Records, ‘Gestaltzerfall‘, which arrived earlier this month. We are including a stream of the album – also available for streaming and purchase at Bandcamp – along with the band’s previously presented video for another song “Coffin Nail” from the new offering.
‘Gestaltzerfall‘ is the anticipated first full-length outing from DAGGER THREAT, which follows two previous EP releases: ‘Reality Bites‘ (2017) and ‘History Repeats‘ (2016). Listeners will find a merciless battery of old-style hardcore crossed with guitar-fueled metal, a style similar to such acts as Integrity or Strongarm. Laden with unbridled aggression and undiluted angst, this is mercilessly volatile music with harrowing elements intact, yet laced with intermittent melodic moments.
