DEAD HEAD – ‘Haatland’ ‘Haatland’ to be re-issued next Feb. 25th !
Dead Head was formed in 1989 in the Zwolle/Kampen area in The Netherlands. Straight from the start the band portrayed a hard working ethic and released several demos and did a ton of live shows. The band also released three full length albums and an ep before they started working on their fourth album ‘Haatland’. With six years between “Kill Division” and “Haatland” the band perfected their raw, aggressive Thrash Metal sound even more. The production again improved and the band showed their potential was equal to that of many established names in the Thrash Metal genre.
The album was met with raving reviews but sadly poor distribution again prevented the band from living up to their potential. Luckily in 2021 ‘Haatland’ will be re-issued on 2-CD and LP by Petrichor so the world can re-acquaint itself with this masterpiece of sheer brutality and refined haunting melodies. Petrichor have added a ton of bonus material again to the CD-version of this re-issue. Dead Head is by no means a blast from the past as the band will release a new album in 2022. A raging slab of Thrash at its finest. Great production, insane riffs and maniacal vocals combined to crush your skull.
