Dead Head have been around since the late 80`s which was a golden and extremely fertile period for thrash metal, and it shows. Their style is just about as aggressive as thrash can logically get before having to refer to them as death metal whilst thankfully managing to retain a slight 80`s vibe, although Dead Head's new album Swine Plauge is 100% 2017 as well.
Everything about Swine Plague just ooozes unadulterated seething hatred, and aural violence at an unheard level. The raging, savage, heavy yet scything hyperfast guitar riffs are so crammed with maliciousness that you instantly realize that Slayer have in all reality been effectively dead for over 25 years.
The vocals which easily rival any thrash band in history for delivering snarling savage hatred, should show Kreator what they have been incapable of producing since Extreme Aggression. The fast cannon like drumming is unrepentant, and forms a perfect malevolent percussive backing for this brutal aural bashing. If the band's previous albums haven't cemented them into the annals of thrash history just yet, Swine Plague should certainly seal the deal.
