4 stars To me DEAD SOUL TRIBE is a misunderstood statement... beacuse is more grunge and groovy than metal per se, thus, is a kind of progressive-grunge from an american with a very strong flavor of europe. Said that, this record takes a lot from the previous effort (THE JANUARY TREE), that a i think is a little bit better than these one, beacuse here they pretend to "perfect" the formula instead of going outside the pack. So, THE DEAD WORD starts with a story opener, inviting the audience to sit and listen , a proper way to "say between the lines" that this kind of music is by any meanings no filler or ambient elevator type, showing a lot of groove with A FLIGHT OF..., and TO MY BELOVED, entering with a more agressive approach into DON'T YOU EVER HRT, but slows down with a near folk attempt in SOME SANE ADVICE, catching again with LET THE HAMMER FALL and WAITING IN LINE, sadly it's broken completly with a very slow and somber SOMEDAY, It's in here where you find the brighter moment of the album, with MY DARLING..., A FISTFUL..., and THE LONG RIDE HOME, a set of three solid renditions to their own style and personal evolution. Overall, the album is more groovy oriented and low than before, in here DEVON plays less with other instruments, of course until the last 3 songs; However, this band has proven that chops and show-off aren't the only way to create some alluring and complex metallic sounds. highly recommended. peace.
