Dead Army rock the Smokehouse with a touch of metal

E-mail Print PDF

My timing was really off, May 10, so missed several shows I wanted to see because I wanted to make sure I caught new local rock band Dead Army, who were playing the Smokehouse with several other metal and hard rock bands including Eons of Earth.

 They have a lot of potential, with lots of effects drenched guitar and groovy, throbbing bass. They had plenty of smoke and flashing lights and riffs  that took you back to the heyday of detuned ’90s grunge and post grunge music, but with just a touch of Zack Wylde era Ozzy Osbourne.

Most of their set was all original music. One highlight was  a song called “Jaded Flower,” which  Morrison noted he wrote 10 years ago in Winnipeg.
