Virginian death/thrash metal veterans metal Deceased headed back into the studio this year to record \”Surreal Overdose\”, their first full-length of all-new material since 2005\’s \”As The Weird Travel On\”.

The sumptuous “Skin Crawling Progress” start us off in style, this track is over 7 minutes long and never loses its edge all the way through. The next 5 tracks carry on in a similar vein and are great to listen to.

We landed up at “ A Doom Laden Aura” this short melodic instrumental introduces us perfectly into “Dying In Analog” this epic track is about 8 & a half minutes long, its rounds off the album superbly. It starts off slightly softer than the other tracks before picking up speed.

“Surreal Overdose” is a no nonsense album with the drums delving through the powerful, roaring riffs combines well with the strong and masterful vocals that tear their way through all these tracks. I really enjoyed this album and have been playing for the last few days.
