Carrying on my theme from the weekend, here's another recent UK release. Footloose Records, who've featured a few times already on the blog are due to this five-track LP by St Albans hardcore crew Dead Weight, which features three bonus songs from their previous "Cut Loose" EP and three previously unreleased live tracks. This review features the five tracks on the A-side.
Dead Weight formed in 2010 and have been playing all over the place, including supporting Backtrack and Your Demise this year alone! Victim Of Deceit was released in May.
2. Life In Spite
3. Eleventh Hour
4. Nail Bed
5. Iron First.
Dead Weight play massively meaty hardcore. Following bands like Malevolence and Demoraliser, they major of stomp heavy riffs and atmosphere taken from the likes of Machine Head and Shadows Fall. Falsification is their signal of intent and a rousing opener, They ratchet up the intensity on Life In Spite. The vocal tones are lower on Victim Of Deceit, lending Dead Weight a more sinister and violent edge. Very European in style.
