Dead Dark Slide are a band from Florida that plays a mixture of industrial and gothic rock with touches of death metal and this is a review of their 2014 ep "I Am Dead" which was released by Dead Games Records.
Drum beats and dark sounding guitar riffs start off the ep along with death metal growls and high pitched industrial screams and you can also hear some keyboards in the background and they keep everything in a slow to mid paced musical direction and the melodies they use are in an early 80's gothic rock direction.
You can hear some elements of post punk in their musical sound at times and on some of the alter songs the keyboards start sounding more powerful along with a very atmospheric feeling and the vocals also get more diverse while still having a very aggressive sound to them as well as sounding more tormented as well as having a melodic edge to them at times.
Dead Dark Slide creates a very interesting musical style that takes the heaviness of industrial metal, the melody of gothic rock and the death metal approach to vocals to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics cover dark and depressive themes.
In my opinion Dead Dark Slide are a very great sounding mixture of industrial, gothic rock and death metal and if you are a fan of thos e musical genres, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "JUST DIE" "Watching You Bleed". 8 out of 10.
