CD Review: 6:33- Deadly Scenes(Available January 13, 2015)Kaotoxin/Clawhammer PR

The rating above means this is a special album and is really a 5.5 star rating

Looks can be deceiving and yes even I misjudged and took the cover at face value and thought this must be some really dark and Death Metal, could I be wrong?
Then saw the band photo and seeing they look a cross between Mushroomhead and Slipknot I thought again -yes Heavy Metal for sure, well then I pressed play on the digital album I was sent and what!!?? WOW was I wrong almost a big band jazzy sound with Heavy Metal but with clean singing and some screaming but wow, none the less what a shocker to say the least.
If you do not believe me then check out their music video below:
One of the most creative and cinematic music videos I have ever seen.

I cannot applaud this band enough for their musical prowess and the bravery here musically speaking with so few bands taking a chance in the creative process and allowing themselves to express their art freely.Folks they are using banjos on one song and so many instruments I am sure there is almost a small orchestra playing with them and then using some modern technology as well with the mix, what a treat!
"Modus Operandi" slows things down a bit and what an exceptional song really gets things interesting almost a big top kind of score in the background -with people conversing in half of the song -this is not your average band, this is something special very unique indeed.
I cannot say enough good things about this album it is like a breath of fresh air, I am listening to the song "Last Bullet for A Gold Rattle" which starts around the campfire and hear the crickets and the fire crackling and then we have guitars and harmonies , great song.
Thank you for reading this
