Dead End are a band from t he Netherlands that plays a mixture of doom and death metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "Reborn From The Grave" which will be released in September by Vic Records.
Thunder sounds and church bells start off the album along with some horror movie style keyboards and after the intro the music goes into more of a heavier doom metal direction where you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are present on the recording and the riffs also use a great amount of melody.
Vocals are mostly death metal growls and when the music speeds up some Swedish influences from the early 90's can be heard while the solos and leads bring in even more of a dark and melodic sound and some tracks also bring in a small amount of grim screams while some tracks also bring in a decent mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while a couple of tracks brings in a brief use of clean playing and the last song is very long and epic in length.
Dead End plays a style of doom/death metal that is very heavily rooted in the early 90's day of the genre, the production sounds very old school while the lyrics cover dark, depressive and death themes.
In my opinion Dead End are a very great sounding mixture of doom and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Dead End (Reborn)" "Mea Culpa" "Venture" and "Wearing The Cloak". 8 out of 10.
