DEAD MORTICIANS, THE: Back to the Grave: CD

May 21, 2014

Total headscratcher. Songs run the gamut from hackneyed spooky rock to turgid straight edge anthems. Plus, the vocalist sounds like the bastard son of Jello Biafra and Dance with Me-era Jack Grisham. Releases like this remind me of why I often do not believe the post ‘90s explosion of inexpensive recording mediums to necessarily be a good thing for popular music.
