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!
