Nothing Left To Fear

nltf slider
1991 saw the release of the third Destiny album, Nothing Left To Fear. This record proved Destiny to be as continually evolving as ever. It’s darker and heavier than the previous albums in a very in-your-face sort of way. From the opening title track it’s relentless, powerful metal that will tear down anything silly enough to occupy airspace in its path. Still, the album is in no way a change of course. It’s a very logical progression from Atomic Winter and you can all but see the threads leading from that album to Nothing Left To Fear.

Destiny also produced their first promotional video ever for a track off this album, The Evil Trinity. The video has played on several major networks. Another two tracks from Beyond All Sense were re-recorded for this album: Sirens In The Dark and Rest in Peace. Once again, the improvement was as obvious as the fact that the debut album was marred mainly by its lack of proper production.

The praise from the media once again was uniform. ”An almost perfect album”, said Martin Carlsson (acclaimed Swedish metal writer) . ”Don’t miss this album!”, was the enthusiastic response from Annika Sundbaum-Melin of Aftonbladet. ”It’s the very intriguing arrangements that keeps your interest alive, the music mirrors more feelings than just the aggressive and that’s good”, wrote Bert Gren of Göteborgsposten. Praise indeed. Still, the band had unfortunately signed a third lousy deal. Therefore, the success that usually follows unanimously favourable reviews like the above did not follow.
