thought the 90's alternative hard rock scene went out of business
and had closed it's doors a long time ago, but then out of the blue
appears Dead Poetic. Some might find their sound outdated and
boring, but I actually think itís quite refreshing to hear a band
with their roots in the early 90's US hard rock scene.
'Vices' was released in the US on the small independent Tooth & Nail
Records in late October 2006, and now Century Media have decided to
unleash this band onto us Europeans on January 22nd 2007. 'Vices' is
the 3rd album from this young US band, and I am unfamiliar with
their earlier album, so it with a fresh mindset I put this album on.
sure what I was to expect, I must admit this ended up being a nice
experience, and I am sure Dead Poetic will gain some well
deserved attention in Europe as well. Granted their Pearl Jam and
Stone Temple Pilot influenced hard rock might not appeal to quite as
many rock fans as it would have done a decade ago. But let the music
do the talking, and I am sure fans of 90's alternative hard rock /
grunge will find much pleasure with this album.
give this album a chance...
