Dead Lights is a rock band that hails from Boston and have been writing, recording, and mastering this album for a few years. This album, titled We are Finite is a concoction of fast-paced, heavy moving rock ‘n roll sounds that’ll have you headbanging as a backdrop of ominous and dreary lyrics lace your ears. These guys have a huge amount of musical talent, evident in the amazing guitar and drum sounds throughout this album.
The first song of the album is called “Move Ahead” and has a fast-paced, punky, rock n’ roll sound right from the first beat and follows us throughout the entire album. The electric guitars come in blasting together, and unless you have no soul you’ll be immediately headbanging with them. The lyrics come in soon after, and are very direct and to the point. The singer has a deep voice, similar to early 2000’s rock bands. The guitars are excellent, and lace the tracks of this album with fast-paced finger picking, dancing, and heady riffs that accompany the vocals and drums perfectly.
The vocals throughout the album are raw and in your face. The singing is not the most impressive part of the album, and somewhat monotone. While the singing is not the most outlandish highlight, the drums and guitar constantly display and amazing array of talent. The last minute of lots of the track in this album, like “In the Hills” for example, tend to have badass guitar solos or rocking riffs that give this album a lot of life and energy.
The guitars are impressive and may be the highlight of the album. They display lots of different sounds, from heavy metal rock to more calm, soulful sounds. The song “The Devil in Rock n’ Roll” for example changes into a more southern rock, blues sound let by the guitars. It’s a fun album driven by a wide variety of guitar riffs that keep you on your toes and moving.
There are lots of interesting concepts in We are Finite. The majority of the tracks have very dark and ominous themes that deal with frustrating, dead-end type of scenarios. It’s a cool concept to listen through and the lead singer has a voice that’s perfect and easy to listen to with that kind of backdrop.
The entirety of We are Finite is a badass rock ‘n roll album that displays a fun array of guitar solos, riffs, and loud in-your-face sounds that’ll keep you headbanging and following along. The lead singer has a raw and unique voice, and is accompanied talented musicians that display their versatile talents
