Dead Jack

‘Destroy the World’ is a promotional single by Dead Jack, an angry band that fuses metal and fast punk in an unholy union.

The concept of destroying the world is not a new one, various generations have tried to achieve this ambition using various schemes. However, Dead Jack don’t own a white cat or a monorail, so they are going to do it using aggressive lyrics and loud guitars.

This single features a moody piano intro, followed by some complex guitar work and a barrage of speed drumming. Dan Foy barks the vocal line, including a really catchy bit just before the chorus, with great confidence.

The frantic race between the instruments continues with ‘I Killed them All’, which has a more melodic vocal, a sing along chorus reminiscent of 70’s punk and some assured bass by J Foy.

Dead Jack will interest you if you want some dirty, noisy music delivered with a cynical smile.
