Summary:

Good well crafted lyrics; powerful vocals; lots of guitar riffs; super fast drumming. All in all a fantastic début EP to get these guys on the road to Metal Super Stardom.

Die No More are a British Metal band from Penrith, Cumbria. Formed in 2011 they started out playing under the name of Dynamo but changed their name to Die No More earlier this year, due to foreseeable issues with magician Dynamo, before announcing the release of their début album Blueprint.

From the very start this EP had my full attention. The opening track ‘Conscious Indecision’ with its powerful drumbeat and quality riffs is like a fusion of Metallica, Megadeth and Faith No More (yes – really) all rolled into one. Next came the lead track ‘Council of War’ which will, no doubt, become their signature piece with Die No More being part of the chorus, another fast paced and energetic track.This is followed by ‘Nightmares’, another song of the same high quality. Last, but by no means least, is my favourite track, the punky ‘Oblivious’ with elements of Guns n’ Roses (I’m thinking of their faster numbers like Garden of Eden) which ended this cracking little EP on a high note and left me wanting to hear more.

Good well crafted lyrics; powerful vocals; lots of guitar riffs; super fast drumming. All in all a fantastic début EP to get these guys on the road to Metal Super Stardom. I’ll certainly bang it in the car stereo, crank the sound up and put my foot down as I’m travelling the Highway to Hell! Die No More have gigs lined up in Manchester and Newcastle in October and Carlisle in December. I have seen them as both Dynamo and Die No More and look forward to seeing them pulling some of their best metal faces!

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
