Dead Dark Slide – I Am Dead EP

Dead Dark Slide – I Am Dead EP

20th August 2014 0 By Suzie Rottencrotch

I’m very picky when it comes to goth, industrial and death.  There are so many bands producing albums in these genres that for one reason or another I just don’t like – sometimes just because the band in question isn’t doing anything original enough, and sometimes simply because what the band is doing just doesn’t do it for me.

Unfortunately, the latest EP from industrial-influenced goth rockers Dead Dark Slide is one of those releases that doesn’t resonate with me.  The five tracks on the I Am Dead EP are plodding industrial goth by numbers that are only memorable because they’re so cheesy sounding.

There are subtle elements of Marilyn MansonType O Negative and Rob Zombie here, but the overall sound is a generically dull and annoyingly repetitive one.  And it says an awful lot when a band can’t even hold your interest for 5 songs.  Maybe if the production was crisper this would have some sort appeal, but instead we’re treated to vocals that are horribly distorted and sound like they’ve been recorded at a different volume to the rest of the band.

Maybe it’s me missing the point, and fans of  this sort of music will love this, but this sounds like it was created by a couple of six formers in a bedroom sometime back in the early 90’s.  Avoid.

Score: 6 out of 10
