Seven years since their debut album, SLAGDUSTER is back with their new album Deadweight. The album definitely shows that the band has evolved their sound. Advancing with a more complex and much heavier style with the likes of Goijira, Meshuggah and The Dillinger Escape Plan.
The first single off of the album “Peeping Ron” showcases what the album has to offer. The song kicks off with a punch featuring harsher vocals. Building on a more technical and progressive sound, all the instruments are crisp and stand out.
The album ends on a high note with “Untouchable”. This song is surely to leave you head banging the entire time. Personally I found this song ends the album on a high peak, with its stronger instrumentals. The raging riffs from the guitar and groovy drums will leave you wanting more.
The entire album is a solid piece of work from its instrumentals to its lyricism. Although the album seems to thrive on instrumental variation and dynamic song structure, it also seems to blend well together. If you have a chance I highly recommend picking up the album.
I’m Phil and 27 years old. I’ve been involved with music as long as I can remember. I’ve worked as a backstage hand, stage crew, street-teamer with Union Events and various labels, been in and out of bands and started my own magazine; Attainable Magazine. In which I focus on band interviews and had the opportunity to sit down with names such as William Control, Real Mackenzies and I Prevail. As well photograph others such as August Burns Red, Silverstein, and Protest the Hero. Though I tend to gravitate towards the heavier styles; punk, metal, hardcore, and so forth. I do end up at any other show I can get too. I originally had gone to university to pursue broadcasting with a minor in photo-journalism but after a year left to continue to purse music on my own terms. If I’m not at a show, I’m either at a record store adding to my ever growing collection. In my free time I also model and practice body-suspension.
