DEED IN KARMA - GOOD DOG (Target/Mobile Music)
Do you own a dog? I do and I consider him as my most reliable friend! He’s honest, he’s always friendly and for him I am a hero. Feels good and when I started to review this one he came to play, again and again. It’s hard and often necessary to learn them rules and they understand that rules are necessary in life. The reason I am talking about the dog is of course because of the title of this album, from a band I have never heard of before, heading from Denmark.
I can’t say Deed In Karma fits the Metal To Infinity webzine because this is more a Rock band, using guitars on distortion. Also musical wise they don’t want to sound traditionally hard’n heavy. They’re out to bring some good Rock, easy on the ear and with lots of varied arrangements. It brings them close to bands like Volbeat and others who are playing this kind of Rock.
And of course the Metal scène encloses bands like this into their arms. Why? Because the Metal scène became much more open minded than in the Eighties. Only older Metal heads stay focused on those days, and they were super, no one can deny that! But if I listen to this record I am glad I received it for review because I hear fabulous songs, great guitars and an intensity that music lovers will adore! I hear a very good singer and awesome tunes. Deed In Karma also mixes some grunge into their songs, Pearl Jam, Alice In Chains, Soundgarden… On “No answer” and “The sun” even Deadsoul Tribe can be mentioned. Got the picture?
So yes, this is a very good effort if you like what I have written before. Good musicians, hard tunes, good melodic lines and a band that offers music that is able to get popular in many ears. To me it’s the ideal CD for this rainy weather. Deed In Karma delivers melancholic tracks and is radio-oriented. I doubt a follow-up album will ever reach Metal To Infinity in the future.
