About Order Of The Dead
Genres:
Metal, Death Metal
Band Members:
In an era when too many “metal” bands seem focused on cramming one hundred breakdowns into every song, learning some embarrassing on stage choreography that would make N’SYNC blush, or tuning their guitars to drop Q and chugging away aimlessly, Order Of The Dead blast through the monotonously mundane with a brutal, and decisively old school roar. A Black Curse Comes is unabashedly heavy, and a triumphant middle finger to current trends that holds its bloody horns high., Black Curse wastes no time with pleasantries, and drops the hammer right out of the gate with “Crimson Tide”. This seven minute thrasher would sit nicely alongside something from the roster of classic Tampa area death metal bands that recorded at the infamous Morrisound Studios in the early 90’s. The guitars on this record ripple, squeal, and dive bomb, instantly taking you back to an era when metal gods were worshiped at the Altar Of Madness by you and your high school buddies; on Walkmans and well-worn cassette tapes alike., The go for the throat ferocity of heavy metals glory days are prevalent on every nuance and note, but is always undercut with just enough European sounding guitar melody to give the album a constant feeling of contrast and tension. A push and pull between the dulcet and the discordant. It is in this aspect where Order Of The Dead truly shines, and keeps Black Curse fresh and interesting through multiple spins. Always technically dazzling, but never losing the listener to a display of self-important musical excess that plague so many other bands of this genre, the song craft is always the key focus here. Each instrument working together seamlessly: Pushing a well-oiled kill machine onward through nightmares of political corruption, (“Three Two Two”), tyranny, (The catchy Swedish metal stomp of “Resistance Is Victory”), and yes- even a zombie apocalypse. (“Sucking The Marrow.”), , To the uninitiated, the sheer force of the vocal delivery here will sound as frightening as an elevator ride with Ray Rice, but to those who long for the days of real and absolutely pummeling metal, your curse has finally come. 4.5/5 -Matt Dalberth, Members, V - Bill Lander (Swollen, Paths of Possession, Bitch in the Well, Samara), B - John Malone (Dead But Not Resting, Beheading the Titan, Abhor), D - Mike Adams (Arkham), G - Sam Cuevas (Phthisis, Valdur), G - Jody Roberts (Brutal Truth, Kalibas, Withered Earth, Kill the Client, Agiel, As the World Burns, Elusive Travel, Stranglefuck), Past Members, B - Toby Bailey (Withered Earth, Bughouse, BML), B - Marcus Alexander, D - Dino Verzillo (Colossus of Rails, Burndwiller), D - Jay Cala (Beheading the Titan, Abhor, Shawcross), D - Mike Giannelli (Grindlink, Elusive Travel, Red Devil Report), G - Matt Zaso, G - Jay Cala (Beheading the Titan, Abhor, Shawcross), G - Chad Chudyk (Within, Shaithus), G - Colin Hanna (Ancalagon, Nokturnal Hellstorm, Cthulu)
