Dead Earth Politics The Mobius Hammersmith EP CD Album Review

Dead Earth Politics: The Mobius ...

Modern Heavy/Thrash/Power Metal
3.5/5.0

Alright. I'm resisting the urge to send you over to my review of Dead Earth Politic's Men Become Gods EP from last year. One thing can be said. At least the band is consistent. DEP has basically bailed on long playing records. Instead they issue their third EP, The Mobius Hammersmith in the same number of years.

Dead Earth Politics

Other consistent things? The melding of classic heavy metal with modern metal, without neglecting the harmony, melody and groove of the former. The fusion of thrash and power metal. The abundance of excellent and inspired guitar solos, perhaps the best feature of Dead Earth Politics following their song arrangements. Then there's Ven Scott's vocals which range from the modern style of hardcore veering into dirty death vocals (as with Runescarred) to more traditional metal, but substantially more aggressive. Some may merely call this versatile. I, on the other hand, can dismiss them with relative ease. It's more like forbearance because I really dig the guitar work of Dead Earth Politics as well as their often thrashy power metal twisted with twin guitar harmony. Those are the selling points. Otherwise, I would have much interest. Bottom line: If you like what you've heard in the past from Dead Earth Politics, The Mobius Hammersmith will demand your interest.

You might be surprised when I say that some weeks the music I consider for review is so predictable to be merely mundane. And then I have to find words to say about it. I'm not necessarily looking for something ... [ Read More ]
