Having gradually metamorphosed from the 80's band Chariot, Deeds (formerly Dirty Deeds) proudly waved the flag of British metal. As Dirty Deeds, they were the first signing of Beast Records (run by Steve Harris of Iron Maiden), a deserving honor. Real World harkens to the good old days of the NWOBHM, featuring no-frills, uncomplicated anthemic metal that is undeniably British (sounding a bit like Saxon in places, or perhaps a NWOBHM version of AC/DC with gruffer vocals). Neither contemporary nor particularly fancy, but effective nonetheless. Prior to recording their third album Blown, the band decided to shorten their name to Deeds, to reflect a new attitude within the band. With leader Pete Franklin returning to Chariot, and guitarist Richie Faulkner landing the coveted gig in Judas Priest, Deeds is likely done.
