Dead Hand are a band from Georgia that has had an album reviewed before in this zine and plays a mixture of sludge and post metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "Reborn Of Dead Light" which will be released in September by Divine Mothers Recordings.
Spoken word samples start off the album before going into a heavier direction while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them while the vocals bring in a mixture of angry sludge style screams and growls along with most of the tracks being very long and epic in length.
Clear vocals can also be heard at times while keyboards are also added into certain sections of the recording along with the slow riffing being very heavily rooted in sludge and doom metal as well as the riffs also adding in a decent amount of melody, elements of post metal can also b e heard quite a bit throughout the recording and the solos and leads are also done in a very melodic style and clean guitars are also utilized on some of the tracks and all of the music sticks to a slower direction.
On this recording Dead Hand remains true to the mixture of sludge and post metal from their previous release the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and philosophical themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Dead Hand and if you are a fan of sludge and post metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Alabaster And Bone" and "Amaranthine". 8 out of 10.
