After 30 thirty years of lying in obscurity comes the first official reissue of this long lost Italian demo. Back from 1989 is Rimini, Italy’s DEADYN. For those built for speed and lusting after any MOTORHEAD influcenced project, this is surely one not to be missed. Cut from the same leather as Italian groups BULLDOZER, BAPHOMET’S BLOOD, and CHILDREN OF TECHNOLOGY. This is music made by Adriactic bikers. Capturing slow, open-E, driving electricity accompanied with a unique dialectic gurgle. Outlaw music from the Italian wasteland. 9 tracks, professionally remastered and bleeding raw. Includes tape hiss and crackle, for true motor maniacs of old. Limited to 500 copies on colored vinyl with poster. and amazing cover art by Sam Turner!
Our take: Vinyl reissue of this Italian band’s 1989 cassette. If you’ve been following Splattered! Records, you know they specialize in Motorcharged punk and NWOBHM, and it’s easy to see why they wanted to resuscitate this obscurity. Deadyn worshipped at Motorhead’s altar, and tracks like “Burn Him Down” are very much akin to what Motorhead worshippers like Inepsy have done in the intervening years. While Deadyn is capable at Motorhead’s style, I like the tracks that are a little slower, which have a grimy, trudging through sand quality that sounds like an early Celtic Frost rehearsal tape. And speaking of tapes, Splattered! presumably remastered this reissue from a somewhat degenerated cassette as there is audible tape hiss throughout. It’s not like Deadyn is doing anything fancy, though, and what they might lose in clarity they more than make up in spooky cvlt vibes.
