ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Review by "The Lord Humongous"

It's very rare that one finds an independent metal band that can stay in tune, keep the timing, and survive the modern musician's lifestyle—especially one that manages to retain their own sound and individuality. Many newer metal bands today follow the current "it" noise, choosing to border the fine line between underground and mainstream. They practically guarantee an authentic twist to an old style and yet still present the listener with the same atrocious verse-chorus-verse and caterwauling solos.

Deathead is a band that delivers on that promise. A metal band local to Utah, Deathead captures a sound that is easily conveyed to the listener while sneaking in complex arrangements and atypical chord progressions.

Brandon Larson and Chris Jester form a competent team of guitarists with implied dark notes and interesting tunings, and Mat Smith, the bassist and percussionist, amplifies these qualities, creating a solid structure and vigorous tempo. Jester, also the lead vocalist, displays a knack for gritty vocals and intense emotion without any obvious strain or difficulty.

It is hard to pinpoint a direct influence with the diverse range of sound, however, rest assured, any Kreator, Nevermore, or Slayer fan would find something irresistible in Deathead's music.

Deathead's latest venture, "An Offering to the Gods"© 2009, provides these varying styles with such energetic songs as "World of Hate" and "Kingdom of the Worm", and eerie guitars saturate the title track. The talent and dedication of the band is definitely present on "The Call" (my personal favorite) that entrances the listener with a looming and ghostly movement through scale rounding out a rather devious and grim listen.

If you have not already obtained your copy of "An Offering to the Gods", albums are still available via the band's website (http://www.deatheadbangers.com) or through their profile at http://www.myspace.com/deatheadofficial. The album is impressively self-produced and mixed and would make a fine addition to any metal-head's collection.
