Deed In Karma
Good Dog
Style: Hard Rock / Alternative Rock
Release date: 1 September, 2014
Playing time: 42:34

After six years in rehearsal basements and with a dream of a studio album Deed In Karma received a sponsorship contribution from the famous Danish footballer Thomas Gravesen, who liked Jonas Holmberg's voice very much. This band plays quite straight forward rock n roll with several songs in the alternative rock genre.

In the opening song 'I Ain't Crawling', I feel some stokes from the Swedes in Mustasch with black guitars, heavy groovy drums and strong vocals. In 'Communication' the pace is gentler and Jonas sings adorable and this is one of the finest tracks on "Good Dog". This is an epic album with many influences from the alternative rock scene, like in the strong track 'War and I' and in the mid tempo song 'She Could Be Dancing'. 'Karma Theme' is built in the heavy rock style with some flirts with prog rock. The track 'Stray Dog' is the best song and is filled with dusty, thick hard rock flavors. The half ballad 'No Answer' is a sensitive song with a lot of emotions.

I like when Jonas sings with his mouth wide open, like he does in 'Anamnesis'. A tough song with mega heavy drums. 'Waiting for the Sun' sounds like Soundgarden has written the track. 'Taste of Regret' is a various song with different characters. The closing song is a calm and beautiful tune and 'Release' is a good way to end this album.

Overall this is an album for fans of alternative rock or curious hard rockers, who want to listen to new, interesting rock music. A nice acquaintance...
