Old school death metal aficionados have reminded us how relevant the genre still means today in opposition with insanely sophisticated over technical death metal that has kindly poured in the past years. Enthusiastic followers for genuine original death metal have grown in numbers again looking for a bit of fresh air from the coffin. Undead was founded by 5 individuals back from the dead with a similar musical vision. They decided to gather reviving forces in order to honor authentic old school death metal as initially mastered by bands like Possessed, Morbid Angel, Celtic Frost, Master, Obituary, Death… The latter being like one of the main godfathers to the genre, Undead has particularly taken it’s root in Death’s majestic, slashing riffs, hammering tempos and those unique dominating guttural vocals. Debut album ‘False Prophecies’ has gathered a roaring response worldwide. “This album is a real sledgehammer and should be bought by anybody who loves the early works of Chuck Schuldiner or Possessed. Simple, catchy and stripped down to the bone death metal with an impressing technical level. Undead are also doing way more than paying tribute to the legends they grew up with, from abrupt yet refined choppy riffings and bashing drums, while undoubtedly straight forward in their approach. Recommended for fans of Death, Deicide, Trigger, Pestilence, Obituary, Massacre, Autopsy, Morgoth.
