 ————————————————————————————————————————–

German melodic death metal/metalcore/metal (depending on the album you’re listening to) band, Deadlock, have released a video for the song “Virus Jones.” The song is taken from their upcoming album, Bizarro World, which is scheduled to be released on March 15th through Lifeforce Records.

Bizarro World is a continuation of the band’s push towards a mainstream sound. While the metalcore and death metal elements are still present, they’ve been injected with a strong pop influence. This has lead to some of the band’s strongest choruses to date, but the music itself isn’t nearly as powerful as it was in the past. Overall, Deadlock are only asking their fans to accept the ongoing transition that has been in progress since the band’s inception – a slow evolution towards an equal blend of soaring pop melodies and powerful metallic riffs combined with the divergent styles of Johannes Prem’s growls and Sabine Weniger’s powerful clean singing.

They could have done a lot more with the video (like give Sabine more screen time), but whatever. I think the main thing to add is that this is probably one of the weaker songs on the album, but also the most similiar to the older albums -- so it was probably a compromise on the band's part to make this the lead song.

Would have been better if Sabine could have gotten triple penetration. Just kidding. I agree with your analysis. Catchy song but they lost so much bite it pisses me off.

Maybe it's because this was the first album that I heard from them, but I like it and am not really disappointed.

Why listen, when looking brings oh-so-much pleasure?

But seriously, I will check this song out later.

It's definitely a lot more tame than previous albums. I don't know if I'd call it boring, though. Glad to see you still floating around here from time to time ;)

You better write one before I wither away and lie in a box, entombed somewhere in between Scandinavia and Cthulhu's underwater monolith.
