The Dead/Ritual Executions/Diabolical Conquest Records/2010 CD Review

The Dead are a band from Austrialia that plays a very brutal form of death metal mixed with stoner/doom metal and this is a review of their 2010 album "Ritual Executions" which was released by Diabolical Conquest Records.

Drums are mostl slow drumming with some ocassional fast playing and bast beats, while the bass playing has a very dark and distorted tone with alot of slow, doomy and heavy riffing.

Rhythm guitars are very slow doom/stoner metal riffs that combine death metal influences to get a much more heavier sound with some faster riffs being used at times that have a black metal influence at times as for the lead guitars they are used only on the last song and have a stoner rock feel to the guitar solos.

Vocals are mostly deep death metal growls mixed in with some high pitched screams that are slightly black metal influenced, while the lyrics cover death, dying, cannibalism, suicide and one song is about centurians, a for the production it has a very heavy and raw sound to it with all of the musical instruments sounding very brutal.

In my opinion The Dead are a very good brutal stoner/doom/death metal band, and if you are a fan of this style, you should check out this band. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Centurian" "Born In A Grave" and "Ritual Executions". RECEMMONDED BUY.
