A Massive Metal Release From Deathox

An album release from Deaffthox gives off a massive and thrashing metal soundscape that also surrounds itself with elements of 90s underground alternative rock and so much more as it builds an atmosphere that you become quickly attached to and eventually don't want to leave.

The Psycollective LP features a slew of collaborations, and all are in great taste because this record comes together almost like a concept record would where songs have ways of interconnecting with each other.

You get elements of classic metal tonality all over this record from the clean and acoustic guitar tones to the heavy and thrashing ones, there's always a certain sort of character and persona that these songs hit and the tone of everything has a lot to do with that.

That is the exact thing that makes this record hint at nostalgia for me. 

The tones of the guitars and the way everything is arranged and comes together, even the way the drawing is performed I grew up listening to but not just that black and white alternative and rock sounds as well.

You can clearly tell that everyone involved has a true love for their craft and believe me when I tell you, that there are a lot of people involved on this record because it is indeed a collective.

Every song features someone new who came to collaborate with Deathox on this release and this is part of why the record is so massive.

This album has tons of heart, and it came from people with a passion for what they do.

There are definitely a few surprises around the corners of this record and some tracks stand out as singles very much so however, I would strongly suggest listening to this record from beginning to end if you can because I do believe that's the way it was meant to be soaked in.

I love the idea of going through this record as a whole because this is part of what I've missed in so many different kinds of music for so very long.

I think I've grown tired of living in a single based society where everyone just wants to add a single to a playlist.

That's fine and all, but I grew up in a time where you had CDs, cassette tapes, vinyl records, and when an album was released and you wanted it, you had to go and buy it and, when you spent that money on that album believe me you listen to the whole damn thing.

It used to be so much more about the art form and I feel like this album is really helping bring that back because it's much needed right now.

The energy on this record is outstanding and the whole thing just makes you wish you could see this record perform live in front of your face with everyone that was involved on a stage in front of you.

This is a record for true-to-heart metal fans especially the old school days because these guys pinpoint that aesthetic with such perfection that it felt so familiar and warm to me.

There's a lot to love about this record, especially for the Metalhead and all of us and this was not only well put together, but the performance is across the board we're just killer.

If you have an hour to spare and I think you do, put this record on because it's just a great way to get your blood pumping and get you thinking and feeling which is something we only music to do for us.

This gets a 9 out of 10 hands down.
