German straight-edge metallers Deadlock have gone for broke
with Earth.Revolt, an ambitious concept album that brings
together elements from several extreme metal genres.
At their core they are a melodic death metal band, with
one-dimensional metalcore-styled vocals (though a guest
female vocalist breaks up the monotony in a few places),
though at times they slide into black metal territory and
also some gothic moments via some atmospheric keyboards.
The result is less a blending of several styles and more
a case of the band playing different styles as they see fit.
The production and musicianship values are top-notch,
and there's clearly an audience for this, but
the overall package is lacking a bit in the originality
department, particularly with the glut of metalcore/melodeath
bands currently on the scene.
