Dead In The Dirt/Fear/Southern Lord Records/2011 7 Inch Review



Dead In The Dirt are a band from Atlanta, Georgia that mixes crust and hardcore together with grindcore and black metal and this is a review of their 2011 7 inch "Fear" which was released by Southern Lord Records.

Drums range from slow, midpaced to fast drumming with alot of brutal sounding blast beats being thrown in, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars.

Rhythm guitars range from slow, midpaced to fast riffing that combines influences from black metal, grindcore, hardcore and crust punk to create a sound that is very dark, brutal and original sounding and there are little to no lead guitars or solos present on the recording.

Vocals range from deep grind/hardcore growls to high pitched crustcore screams that have a black metal edge to them, while the lyrics touch on dark on hateful thems, as for the production it has a very dark and heavy sound to it.

In my opinion Dead In the Dirt are a very good blackened hardcore/crust band and if you are a fan of this stylee, you should check out this band. RECEMMONDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The Screaming Wind" "Disease" "Skin Graft" and "Fear". RECEMMONDED BUY.
