Dead are a band from Germany that has been featured before in this zine and plays an old school mixture of death metal and grindcore with a touch of doom metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "A Dirty Mind Is A Joy Forever" which will be released in July by F.D.A Records.
Audience interaction and spoken word parts start off the album before going into a very heavy direction along with a mixture of death metal growls and high pitched screams while t he faster sections of the songs utilize a great amount of blast beats along with t he music being rooted in the early 90's.
A small amount of melody can be heard in the guitar riffing and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and some of the riffs add in touched of groove along with the slower sections being heavily influenced by doom metal and when guitar leads are utilized they add in even more of an old school death/grind style and clean playing is also used briefly and samples are also used on a regular basis.
Dead plays another recording t hat remains true to the old school death/grind style of previous releases while also mixing in elements of groove and doom, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover sex, rape, death, perversion and gore themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Dead and if you are a fan of this band, you should check out this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Snakey Brown" "Butcher baby" "Easy Meat" and "The Witch". 8 out of 10.
