Some cool Haatland reviews

  • by

While Haatland is a reissue, several magazines have taken the time to review it. And it’s kind of fun to read people’s descriptions of this revived thrash album.
Some excerpts:

“Haatland” is an old school thrash metal record with a dynamic twist. Adding to the charm of this release is a whole other CD, containing a bunch of outtakes and demo recordings. A full package for the enthusiasts, Dutch and otherwise.…/review-dead-head…/

Downright dirty fast action thrash in the vein of more bands at the beginning of the nineties, especially the German and British ones. As for the extra album, just wow.…/d_2/dead-head-haatland.htm

Stücke, in denen das Quartett hart am Rand des Chaos vorbeischrammt (´Supreme Forgery´, ´Murder´) kaum unverfälschtes Gedresche bieten – komplett mit Kerry-King-verdächtigen Jammer-Solos und einem Duracell-Hasen hinter den Schlagzeug-Kesseln…/Dead…/Haatland-Re-Release/

Gerade bei den recht natürlichen Demo Aufnahmen hört man der Band an, das sie verdammt tight spielen und auch mit etwas abgespeckten Sound ein brutales Inferno veranstalten können.…/7540-dead-head…

The band drastically improved their raw, aggressive Thrash Metal sound and production improved to finally allow the band to showcase their full potential, with many magazines at the time saying Dead Head were equal to that of many established names in the Thrash Metal genre.

Starting with the blistering pace of ‘Faust II’, it’s clear that Dead Head’s formula is intense, bruising and blisteringly fast thrash in a style that could just as easily be 1986, such is the rawness in delivery.…/

Das Schöne an „Haatland“ ist, das es jede Menge Atmosphäre des Thrash Metals der 2000er- Jahre versprüht. Gerade Fans, denen die neuen KREATOR-Album inzwischen ein wenig zu durcharrangiert sind, werden auf diesem Album noch viel unverfälschten Thrash Metal zu hören bekommen, wie die Essener ihn einst auf „Extreme Agression“ oder „Terrible Certainty“ spielten.…/dead-head-haatland/14888

“Haatland” is getting re-issued on 2-CD and LP with infusing production, so the all can re-acquaint itself with this magnum opus of sheer brutality and refined haunting melodies…/dead-head-haatland-re…/

Dead Head is echter een band die nog lang niet klaar is met het ten gehore brengen van zijn extreme thrash. Hoewel de band een trouwe groep aanhangers heeft en iedereen de band wel kent, blijft grootschalige erkenning uit. Maar het gezelschap blijft onverminderd doordenderen.
