"Dead Soul Tribe" (Inside Out; 2002)

Reviewed by R. Scott Bolton


Dead Soul Tribe play a unique brand of metal that sounds a little like Godsmack and Disturbed but boasts a unique, haunting quality that sticks to the dome of your skull for long after listening to the record. When the band rocks, they rock hard. When they want to get a little quieter, more introspective and downright eerie, they can do that, too.

DST also boasts a prog-rock feel to it, especially tracks like "Once." Personally, I wouldn't call the band's sound progressive metal. It has some progressive rock elements, but they aren't the main force behind each song or the overall CD.

For a different, engrossing and (again) haunting listen, give Dead Soul Tribe a try.

Dead Soul Tribe: Devon Graves - vocals, electric guitar, acoustic guitar, bass, flute, keyboards, percussion; Adet Moustafa - drums, percussion; Roland Ivenz and Volker Wilshko - everything else.

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
