“Doldrey make a murky, gnarled, cranked-up form of music that splits the difference between old-school death metal, classic black metal and feral D-beat. They’re one of those bands where lo-fi recording is a true asset, since it makes them sound even more like cave-dwelling berserkers.” -Tom Breihan After a couple season sets worth of gestation, Doldrey has returned with “Celestial Deconstruction”, a proper full length that is decidedly more metal that their previous efforts. Make no mistake, this is still punk as hell but this time with more of a violent stenchcore feel (sans the ridiculous "epic" intros) mixed with Slayer breakdowns and evidence of early Celtic Frost played through the HM-2. Altogether a sound that is pure thrashing nastiness.
After a scorching demo in 2018, Singapore's DOLDREY have seen fit to unleash a hellish alchemical concoction of scraping hardcore and HM2 death metal riffs over a whiplash of pogoed out D-beats. Imagine CARNAGE covering S.H.I.T./ZOUO songs with the creepy crawl parts from HOAX or DARKTHRONE's slower tunes. Suffice it to say that it is hard punk for metalers AND street tough metal for punks. Classic styles combined to make modern sounds. Sick.
