Hailing from Malm-, Sweden, four piece thrash metal unit Dead Sleep have finally released their debut album In the Belly of the Beast on Denomination Records. The album contains 10 tracks of raging energy, addictive hooks and uncompromising lyrics. Dead Sleep forge their special brand of music in between the chaotic aggression of hardcore punk and the bombast of metal. Their sound picks the best from both old and new, falling into a strong tradition of '80ss thrash metal while infusing it with a contemporary feel. Homage is paid to the NWOBHM legacy and there may be nods at black and death metal, but the core lies firmly in classic thrash, with strong guitar riffs at the center, relentlessly propelling the tunes forward.
