Deadlands are a band from Sacramento, California that plays a mixture of power and thrash metal and this is a review of their 2013 album "Evolution" which was released by Massacre Records.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being used at times, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine thrash, groove and power metal together to create a sound of t heir own, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding power/thrash metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals range from thrash style screams and growls, clean singing power metal vocals and some back up shouts, while the lyrics cover dark, political, war and everyday themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion Deadlands are a very great sounding hybrid of thrash, groove and power metal and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should c heck out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Pandemic Genocide" Final Solution" "Shes On Fire" and "Legions Of The Damned". RECOMMENDED BUY.
