DEAD MAN IN RENO
DEAD MAN IN RENO
CANDLELIGHT

Alabama-based Dead Man in Reno's assaultive eponymous debut is a full-on metalcore attack, complete with jagged riffs, bruising breakdowns, and quirky instrumental breaks like the one of strings and piano found at the end of "Cursed" that assists this band in sticking out amongst the vast sea. Produced by Jamie King of the genre-leading Between the Buried and Me, this album displays a sometimes Killswitch ("Even in My Dreams"), sometimes Swedish ("He Said She Said"), sometimes math-y ("The Devil Made Him Do It") and sometimes DIY-style raw vibe ("From Here I Can See the Shore"), as this unit's mixed bag of mayhem will resound with the kids that love the downtuned chug as much as the metalheads who seek something beyond the norm.
