Dead Quiet’s new album Grand Rites is an epic genre-spanning roller coaster ride that is very impressive. I spent the morning listening to it and it’s really good. It is also very hard to categorize which is always the true sign of originality. Check them out on Bandcamp. – Mark Strigl
DEAD QUIET’s “GRAND RITES” OUT NOW!
|Dead Quiet’s new album “Grand Rites“ is out now via Artoffact Records. “Grand Rites” is available now through Bandcamp and iTunes!|
With influences ranging from doom metal to classic rock, Dead Quiet seeks to meld melody with catastrophe as they weave through a dissonant landscape of crushing metallic riffs and somber choral musings. While remaining loyal to crucial heavy metal foundations, the band is successful at pronouncing that heaviness with depth and honesty.
Having the addition of full-time keyboard player Justin Hagberg (3 inches of Blood) to the creative process, the songs have seen a richer dynamic and further broadened their already 70’s rock and early heavy metal characteristic.
With the release of “Grand Rites“, Dead Quiet hope to continue traversing the globe, playing what has become well known as an ultra-energetic, charismatic and ear-splitting live performance.
