Dead Is Dead are a band from Wisconsin that plays a mixture of sludge and post metal and this is a review of their 2017 alum "Constraints Of Time" which will be released in September by Triple Eye Industries.
Atmospheric sounds and clean guitar playing starts off the album and drones are also used briefly before going into more of a heavier musical direction along with some vocals that are very aggressive in almost a spoken fashion bordering on hardcore while the riffs mix in the heaviness of sludge metal.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and clean singing is also used at times while the solos and leads bring in more of a melodic post metal style and the riffs also bring in a great amount of melody while clean guitars are also used on some of the later tracks along with some aggressive screams also being used at times and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length and all of the songs stick to either a slow or mid paced direction as well as adding in a brief use of stoner rock elements.
Dead Is Dead plays a musical style that takes sludge and post metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and philosophical themes.
In my opinion Dead Is Dead are a very great sounding mixture of sludge and post metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "No Longer, No Longer" and "Earth As It's Slowly Consumed By The Sun". 8 out of 10.
