Dead In The Water
Echoes…In the Ruins
August 2007
Released: 2007, Firebox
Rating: 0.5/5
Reviewer: Anders Sandvall

Dead In The Water is a Finnish act and the bands musical roots lies deep in the hardcore/punk scene. But hardcore/punk is not what the band delivers on this album. Instead my ears are filled with some kind of strange mix of slow grinding doom and death metal/punk/hardcore. There are also some really long parts that are strictly instrumental and to make it even blurrier they have added death metal vocals to it all.

All of the 6 tracks on the album are a complete mess and the length of the album, 45 minutes, is enough to drive me crazy in every possible kind of way. The songs are long, boring and contain whispering, black metal, death metal and hissing vocals. They all sound totally similar and are hard to separate from each other.

The only thing I got from this album was a serious headache and if I were you I would think twice before you listen to this album. Don’t forget that I have warned you...
