Four piece Dead Sleep from Malmö, Sweden, are about to release a follow up to their highly acclaimed debut album on Denomination Records. The new record is Naked Tyrant – ten tracks of furious old school thrash metal, taking inspiration from both hardcore punk and the British heavy metal legacy. The track Wages Of War at Bandcamp.
Simple and bombastic at the same time, the songs always carry a strong riff at the center and aggressive, in-your-face vocals. Lyrically, Naked Tyrant is a scathing attack on today’s hollow neoliberalist doctrines. The album was recorded at The End studios together with long-time producer Ulf Blomberg and mastered by one of the band’s personal heroes: Joel Grind from Toxic Holocaust.
