Dead Cross Dead Cross

Lom­bardo and Pat­ton do­ing what they do best

Rhythm - - BEAT! -

For any­one a lit­tle jaded by the an­o­dyne na­ture of much mod­ern rock, there is sal­va­tion at hand. Stick the Dead Cross CD in your old-fash­ioned mu­sic-play­ing ap­pa­ra­tus, and turn it up. Yes, it’s Slayer’s Dave Lom­bardo welly­ing the drums as only he can, with jaw-drop­ping power and awe­some speed, or lay­ing back with crush­ing heav­ios­ity on this al­bum of all-too-brief me­tal/hard­core/thash/punk bangers. Faith No More’s Mike Pat­ton has one of the most bril­liant, ver­sa­tile me­tal voices ever and here he’s on fire on ‘Seizure And De­sist’, ‘Gag Re­flex’ and ‘Grave Slave’. And there’s even a quite straight cover of Bauhaus’ goth an­them ‘Bela Lu­gosi’s Dead’. (CBu) Down­load: ‘SeizureAndDe­sist’ Goto: ipecac.com/artists/dead­_cross
