The Psyke Project Dead Storm

The Psyke Project Dead Storm
Having formed in 2001, the Psyke Project aren't newcomers to mixing sludge metal with colossal, destructive guitar riffs and technically proficient drumming. Thankfully, the Psyke Project are masterful in taking the textural intricacies of sludge metal and mixing them with chaotic percussion, which are contrasted by minimalist instrumentation throughout the semi-quite interludes; it's like the calm before the storm — the perfect storm. The unnerving "Dead People Never Lie" has a nail biting, thrilling intro that's met by a technical onslaught of instruments, yet "Stockholm Bloodbath" opens with monolithic riffs, both heavy and crunchy; it churns and pounds while sparse melodies play throughout the quiet moments. Dead Storm shows how years of making music has honed the Psyke Project's ability to be decimating through a number of styles. Dead Storm takes the listener out to sea and batters them with unrelenting forces of nature. This storm isn't for those who can't brave the elements, as the Psyke Project have created a vicious tempest with Dead Storm. (Lifeforce)
