The Devil Wears Prada - Dead Throne (review)
As said by the lead vocalist of the band, Dead Throne is supposed to be a more heavier album than their previous as they felt they weren't as heavy as they though they were once stated in an interview with the band. They also mentioned that it would be heavier than Zombie EP. The album though is quite a bit heavier than their previous albums but still has a nice element of melody to it.
This album is also (lke the Zombie EP), is recorded with actual mic'ing of the amps and such and not direct input like thier previous albums, so the sound is more real and actually quite nice.
The songs themselves do involve more screaming and more heavier screamings than their previous album though done quite well. The first song sounds quite to the style of Zombie EP with the fading of the guitar, but than the rest of the album appears to be slightly different and sound more of something new the band has made. The guitars are more heavier, but not anymore technical as their previous albums, but in this album, they appear to be more well written and actually sound really nice and compliments the other instruments. Clean vocals are quite nice in this album, and in my opinion the best so far so they are quite enjoyable.
The songs to vary so it is not the constant same thing coming at you, like kansas is a more slower song than the other. In this album it also appears to be less clean vocals as their was before. I personally think the addition which made this album come off so well was having Adam (guitarist from Killswitch Engage whom owns his own studio) doing the recordings and mixing with actually using mic'ing instead of direct input.
The Devil Wears Prada - Dead Throne 7.8/10
