The tracks are convincing precisely because they are not centred on numerous tempo changes, making it a cleaner, more song-focused work.

From Hagen with Death Metal, Denomination released the debut album titled “They Burn as One” on 10 April 2022, after the demo "When Life Ends" (2021), the band returns a year later with a classic old school death metal, solid and with references to the classics Entombed, Vader and Dismember.
The band's approach is to get straight to the point, a musicality without frills, minimalist, that attacks without much ado, or rather sound in this case. The short, doomsday-sounding intro takes us to the first track "This Is Resurrection" with its full-bodied sound, deep guitars and Oliver Heil's cavernous growl, which is the soul of this aggressive and straightforward track. The tracks are convincing precisely because they are not centred on numerous tempo changes, making it a cleaner, more song-focused work.
"Left Hand Of God" with references to the style of Unleashed is definitely an impact piece and as the tracks are convincing precisely because they are not centred on numerous tempo changes, making it a cleaner, more song-focused work. "Bugs" is a dive into the thrash but without deviating from the death that is the mainstay and the dirty growl tends to remind us of the band's orientation.
ln an atmosphere as dark as it is sinister, the energy of 'They Burn As One" is concentrated anger and this young German death metal band prove themselves especially in the tracks "Requiem To Harry" with a good classic up tempo, the old school death "Cleansing Flames", but the best tracks in my opinion are "Conscious Mind" the presence of Motörhead floats through this track, and "Hate Decade In Review" with a deep doom sound. We can find Speed metal sound in "Der Mensch Über Alles".
“They Burn as One” offers Death Metal and Heavy nuances in each tracks, a fresh album, with recalls to the names that brought Death the right importance and with a personal touch, in short, for those who are nostalgic but like to know and listen to new names, this album by Denomination is for you.
