Dead Lord - In Ignorance We Trust

Dead Lord
In Ignorance We Trust
by Craig Rider at 26 November 2017, 11:36 AM

Metal maniacs, rejoice! I'm proud to present to you: DEAD LORD; signed via Century Media Records, hailing from Swedish grounds - performing Hard Rock, on their 3nd album entitled “In Ignorance We Trust” (released 25/08/2017).

Since formation in 2012; the quintet in question have 3 albums in their discography, I'm introduced to their 3rd album: “In Ignorance We Trust”. Delivering a solid slab of intricately designed instrumentation and musicianship that's constructively diverse and delightfully enlightening; 10 tracks ranging at around 38:59, the quartet provide unprecedented varieties which arrange unique developments that's surprisingly fulfilling. “Ignorance” opens up the record, with a distinguishable songwriting/sound production process that's hard-hitting and an full of surprises. Galloping, thunderous riffs explode onto the scene - as Hakim Krim demonstrates an adroitly composed juxtaposition of 70s/80s psychedelic formula while amalgamating it with modern technical progression, his solos have rhythm and a refined vocalization contrast emanating at an exhilarating rate. There's a lot of groovy punchlines which has a sensational - organic aesthetic built in.

Consisting of Olle Hedenström on guitar; the multitasker showcases complex dexterity in the song “Too Late”; comprising of efficient melodies that are relentlessly stimulating, while showcasing diligent anthems and consistently persistent substances that contrive with unparalleled creative distinctions. “Reruns” opens with clean singing until powerhouse drummer Adam Lindmark manifests with a grandiose pummelling methods which are executed profusely. “Leave Me Be” follows suit with more elegant landmarks of that psychedelic atmosphere as it opens up with a slow-tempo riff; while the drums are typically slow for this ballad of a track, it supplies more doomy complexions gracefully. Martin Nordin on bass contributes well in the song “The Glitch”, the finesse in the strums significantly pulverize with a menacingly savage distortion - which sounds grandly splendid, and a super-cool song as well.

The rocking salubriousness established here is commendably written; “Kill Them All” is a sinister piece of formulaic dissimilarity, a good example of the band's striking performances - accurately evolving with a invigorating sense of excitement. “Never Die” is an epic exhibition which makes use of the percussions; doomsday-synthesizers and slide guitars adequately, and the drums get more hastily coherent. “Part Of Me” feels a bit on the serious-side which doesn't pose much of a problem, as it displays more creditable renditions of concrete music - retro rock at its best. “They!” continues this cycle, portraying more delicious solos that swerve with impressive nimbleness. Overall concluding this record with the finale “Darker Times” I am compelled to say that this was a fascinating record, with only a couple discrepancies that were easily forgotten - as the band had me rocking all throughout. Worth checking out.
