Death Bed Confession
Who ’dat?: Jay Qintana (vocals); James Connell (guitar); Brian (guitar); Paul Henry (bass); Dingo (drums)
Pigeon-holed as?: Heavy metal
We’re not saying they are these guys, but they kind of sound like: Queensryche, Anvil, Pantera.
What’s their deal?: Their goal is kick-ass, punch you in the face metal, and their new self-titled album is exactly that. Qintana definitely flexes his vocal muscles with some heavy screams, but fortunately for the band, they don’t just rely on that. A lot of this album shows a well-balanced restraint that many metal bands miss. As hard and heavy as their sound is, ears aren’t fighting for something to latch on to.
