Dream Long Dead are a band from Greece that plays a mixture of doom/death, punk and sludge metal and this is a review of their self released 2012 album "Madness Dead Grave-Invocations Three to the ONES That Lurk At The Threshold".
Drums are all slow to mid paced playing with no fast drumming or blast beats being present on this recording, while the bass playing has a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars are all slow to mid paced heavy and dark riffs that combine doom, death metal, sludge and punk together to create a sound of their own along with some distorted effects and a brief use of soft and clean playing, while the lead guitars are very dark sounding old school doom/death metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals are all old school sounding death metal style vocals that go back to the origins of the genre, while the lyrics cover Occultism and the writings of H.P Lovecraft, as for the production it has a very heavy, dark, raw and primitive sound while you can s till hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording with the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion Dream Long Dead are a very great sounding hybrid of doom, death metal, punk and sludge and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should c heck out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACK "The Dead Dream Under Our Skin". RECOMMENDED BUY.
