Fred & The Living Deads

FRED & THE LIVING DEADS is Hard Rock band from Sarre-Union/ Sarreguemines in France formed in 2011. The guys have released in, 2013 debut EP titled, „FRED & The Living Deads”. They play Rock with punchy rhythms and catchy melodies.

For me the best track from this EP is “Live My Life” with stronger riffs, modern keys & deep vocals. It’s just fantastic. Everything is perfectly worked. Voice is so nice and has similarity to Klaus Meine (SCORPIONS), which sounds amazing with choir of band singing together. Fantastic song “Compare You to Me” plays in easy ways that makes the listener want to listen to such great music more & more. In this song is hear able, a similarity to the band SHYLOCK.  Another great band like SHAKRA can be recognized in “Shelter”, where you will find fabulous Rock riffs with happy echoes, choir, and a great guitar solo! Perfect rhythmic section meets amazing strength, with connecting mega melody in “Strawberry Joe” bring to mind influences of FLOW or SEETHER. The guys enjoy playing this music, and put so much effort into creating it with their hearts and lots of energy!

Fred Labudka, the band's powerhouse, has a really nice voice which is similar to Klaus Meine (SCORPIONS), Mark Fox (SHAKRA), Claus Lessmann (BONFIRE), and Steve Lee (GOTTHARD), which makes you want to want listening to him again and again. Worth a mention, is that his English is very clear. The single track “Fever” is opened by nice gentle guitars & then a more energetic and melodic climate. Catchy refrain is in a climate as such modern bands like BREAKING BENJAMIN and HOOBASTANK.

This album of FRED & THE LIVING DEADS is highly recommend for everyone who likes to listen a high level of sound, with modern techniques of music. The melodic tracks, in a Hard Rock style, are well-worked. Here is power, energy and, a passion for playing music. Sounds played in an easy way is really enjoyable during listening. This is a perfect mix with melodious & catchy sounds. Highly recommend!
