jasonbenj Nice to get this on MP3, as I have had the vinyl forever, but it doesn't play well in the car

Lute FP Sounding a little like Graveyard in general aesthetic, but with a crunchy guitar tone and riffage reminiscent of MOP era Metallica. Coupled with the minor pop elements in the songwriting style and up-front hammond-esque keyboards, this is one of those albums that catches your attention immediately and only grows on you with repeated listens. There’s a lot going on here, and it works. Killer album.

Damon Morgan Holy Fuck!!!! I can’t begin to explain how good this is. Popped up in my suggestions and I jumped on this based on the opening riff! Been on repeat ever since. Everything about this is fantastic.

I’m steering clear of the “sounds like” comparisons. This sounds like Dead Quiet and it is amazing. Buy this now. Favorite track: Of Sound and Fury.

Atoned Deaf 06:17
The sun shines in and I’m not getting up The fear is crushing me One last time because I’m not giving up This life is testing me If I lie like this I can live like this forever But I’ve got this demon to contend with If I’m high like this, I’ll die like this I don’t think I can live forever The clock strikes when and I think I’ve had enough The cycle it repeats I’ve reached the bottom, all is said and done This weakness is me. It only seems like forever when all I’ve lost is my temper It only seems like surrender because I want to put my head through this window. I want to never look back This life is never like that. It feels like everybody is against me and when you hit that lowest low, it feels like the end.
2.
I know that I failed you I know I’ve been down this road before Feels like I enabled myself to become the one who’s alone But I had to, never meant to, hurt you like that It turned into, what it had to, to save myself Felt like a sign, time after time Been a bit cold out lately since you’ve been mine Now I’m back to the same old loneliness that made me so hard to hold This might be my downfall Then again I think I’ve found my home It’s still so, so painful, the thought of how I hurt you, never meant to, watch you go Not ready to sing this song, they said the writings on the wall But you stayed and I left and you made me regret myself and I failed myself.
3.
You get that feeling, you’re finally awake That sin of silence, that very bitter taste Your words are weapons, the rules have never changed Don’t want to witness the frail and the sick You’ll drive a knife through everything that is I feel a pulse now, I know it isn’t dead What would you do if you were me? Listen closely, its not always how it seems You want to come to my house? You’d better let your hair down You could have walked away Yeah I’m afraid to fail this now But I came to play and you stayed despite You want that silver lining You found a weakness, you found a flaw You’ll find greatness in throwing stones My visions blury but the skies are getting clear We’re on a mission, the line is drawn in sand It’s for a pitence, the drive that never ends You won’t make it easy? You wont make it far
4.
Walked down a road I barely know, felt like a runaway People I’ve known, feelings I’ve shown, figments of memory Blackest my soul, filling a hole, not that you’ll ever know The truth wasn’t told, burden my soul, ruin is everything Life put on hold, constant sorrow, they follow everyday Be as it may, regardless of age, victims of honesty. Fell asleep and hit the ground What comes up must come down This life is full of fallacies The god of love is the god of rage To be alone is to be myself. The acid rain it calls my name It burns my skin and keeps me safe The alibi was full of lies It fed the truth while the body died The aches and pains, the scratching skin Becomes the norm, begins again Threat of fire, fear of death Either way I’ve made my bed. Our enemies are not what they seem Its not alright, its not ok. Of all the things that I have lost, I’ve lost my mind It’s not ok, it’s not alright The darkest days aren’t far behind Let us prey.
5.
You walked through winter A dark horse at night You came to whisper weakness And I came to life I had my fortune spoken, innocence undressed I left the window open, you got inside my head Fear not the reaper, this one is worse They left the whole world sinking They made a mess You had your way You laid the ground that spelled the end. This love is just the mess I’m in It was another failed attempt The things I wish I knew were right, it’s alright Dear lord I know I promised you that I’d never sink this low The things I wish I knew were right, it’s alright.
6.
Print my name in blood The time it takes to dry is not enough You wont say the things you’ve done But they are true girl, its what you want This is the sign of a sealed fate This is the sound of a heartbreaking Discard these ashes, the urn burns away Peel back countless encounters and wasted days The ill fever and its evil ways Symptoms of loyalty These are the signs of misery They fuel the suffering This is the sign of a sealed fate This is the sound of a heartbreaking All aboard this sinking ship, it’s happening Down to his watery grave, he lives in it Find me now, all alone You’re the one who wanted out We played our roles, we played our parts That’s the sound of a breaking heart
7.
I think I saw you moving, I thought I saw something move in your eyes A darkness and a light, at the same time. Who do you think you are foolin’? You’ve burnt the candle from both sides Now here you lie. Cold grey death decides the finality of all of this. The sorrow, the madness, the horror, those things that you saw. I don’t know what you were thinking, curled up writhing, ready to die The lasting moments of life, spent inside. You didn’t know what you were doing, you thought you were just killing time One more and you’ll be fine. Hello stranger, I didn’t catch your name? It was me who found you laying in the street I knelt down before you during your final breath And here it is, your cold grey death There was no trouble finding your shallow grave It was right there, lying next to mine Feels like forever since it was yesterday So here it is, this is your destiny

about

Forming in 2014, Dead Quiet established themselves quickly with the release of their debut self titled record in 2015. By the time writing commenced for their follow up record, Grand Rites in 2017, Dead Quiet had found their perfect line up in Kevin Keegan (Barn Burner), Brock MacInnes (Anciients), Mike Grossnickle (Hashteroid) and Jason Dana. The release of Grand Rites on Toronto’s Artoffact Records was followed by two European tours, one of which being direct support for John Garcia (Kyuss), as well as numerous festival appearances including Desertfest Belgium and Into the Void (NL), further cementing the band as one to watch out for. After a rigorous year of touring, the band had no intention of slowing down and swiftly entered the studio to record their third record: Truth and Ruin. Again teaming up with Artoffact, Truth and Ruin saw the addition of Mike Rosen to the band and further broadened the already keyboard laden sound they’d established on previous efforts. Truth and Ruin proves that work ethic and chemistry can truly refine a band’s sound to what they had always been striving for: heavy instrumentation combined with rich melody and uniquely personal lyricism, making Dead Quiet one of the hottest, must-see bands on the Canadian landscape.
