Dead are a band from Australia that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of sludge, punk, and noise rock and this is a review of their 2017 album "We Won't Let You Sleep" which will be released in April by We Empty Rooms.
Powerful sounding bass guitars start off the album and they mix in a touch of sludge and stoner metal and after awhile heavy guitar riffs and noise rock style vocals are added onto the recording and you can also hear elements of hardcore in the bands musical style and the solos and leads are done in a very distorted yet melodic fashion.
At times the music can be very experimental while also mixing in a great amount of 80's and 90's influences while also being very modern at the same time and melodic singing along with psychedelic and punk elements can also be heard at times and all of the songs stick to either a slow or mid paced musical direction.
Dead creates another recording that remains true to the sludge, punk, experimental, and noise rock mixture of previous releases, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover real life themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Dead and if you are a fan of sludge, noise rock and punk, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Frankly" "Where's My Gold Star" "Don't Skimp On The Change" and "Pylons". 8 out of 10.
