Fifth Dead biography
Fifth Dead is a long-lived (1971-1986) but hardly prolific band from Koblenz in Rheinland. Fronted by guitarist/vocalist Dirk Crecelius, Fifth Dead developed a peculiar psychedelic-blues sound with a commonly herky-jerky composition style. Of the six tunes, all recorded between 1973 and 1976, "What Can We Do" is the true standout, an extended march-style psychedelic journey with extra-cool heavy 'buzz-guitar.

2 stars FIFTH DEAD was founded in 1971 by very young musicians (less than twenty years) who were inspired by Black Sabbath and Uriah Heep. The band worked hard for a good reputation as a live attraction in the Kaiserlautern region and existed until 1982. Their first recorded song 'A Special Man' in 1973 became the B-side of a german Schlager vinyl single for what reason ever. Other four songs later appeared on the sampler 'Psychedelic Gems 2' which was released in 1997.

In 1976 they produced this single record including two songs - not following their initial inspiration because lacking in uniqueness and inspiration. Dirk Crecelius' vocals are not my cup of tea, others might say he can't sing. Blue Sky is bluesy balladesque and sounding amateurish. The lead guitar is the only glimmer of light. Devilking comes as the better one in a heavy rock vein. As for a conclusion this is not more than a mediocre rock sound referring to beat music - nothing which sounds experimental or innovative.
