Heat of Damage

Album Review by Allyson Kingsley, Music Journalist

Boston Rock Radio 


From Sacramento, California we have the hard rock/heavy metal group, Heat of Damage, blowing through your speakers with a mix of thrash, groove, hardcore and stoner metal. Heat of Damage is a band for our times, covering a variety of themes such as environmental issues, societal oppression, and the hell that is the current political climate. All heavy matters aside, the album is quite fantastic for a listen. The musicians are Julian Bohland (drums), Jared Easter (bass/hardcore vocals), David Haug (Vocals), and Nick Lassalette (guitar). Cataclysm was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Hunter Driscoll Audio.

“Siegfried's Last Bow” starts off with the sound of an old tune being played on a victrola or something equally antique and then rushes you full blast and full tilt. “Thoughts and Prayers”- such a common thing some people say on social media especially when you don't know what the hell else to say, is not about that, rather it rages against what is going on in the world. From my interpretation of the song, it is as though we have become numb to what atrocities are happening on a daily basis. I love the intro fretwork on “ Nightgrowler” and there's just a certain something about the rhythm of the song that captivated me. “Guardian Angel” is incredible and a song I needed to hear today. My take on the meaning is when you are isolated because of your own way of life, others are so quick to judge you, and fuck knows we've all experienced this. 

Cataclysm is a very soul-searching album. It speaks deeply and personally within. Beautifully done.
