Dead Quiet are a band from Vancouver B.C, Canada that plays a mixture of hard rock, stoner and doom metal and this is a review of t heir self titled and self released 2016 album which will be released on May 27th.
Heavy guitar riffs start off the album along with some drums a few seconds later and after awhile clean singing vocals make their presence known on the recording along with some psychedelic sounding keyboards and the music also brings in a great amount of 70's hard rock elements along with all of the musical instruments having a very powerful sound to them.
A great amount of melody can be heard in the guitar riffing and the stoner rock elements give the music more of a modern style and when solos and leads are utilized they stick to a very melodic musical direction and as the album progresses clean playing along with acoustic guitars can also be heard in certain sections of the recording and a couple of the tracks are very long and epic in length while one song also brings in a brief use of spoken word parts and all of t he tracks stick to a very slow musical direction while also adding in small amounts of female vocals, bluegrass style instruments and slide guitars on some of the later songs.
Dead Quiet plays a musical style that takes 70's and 80's doom metal and mixes it with a more modern stoner style, the production sounds very professional for being a self released recording while the lyrics cover dark and real life themes.
In my opinion Dead Quiet are a very great sounding mixture of hard rock, stoner and doom metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Sorceress" "My Finest Hour" "Home Is Where You Go To Die" and "A Thousand Lives". 8 out of 10.
