There can be no doubting the British midlands have been a virtual factory for producing the most innovative rock bands in music history. From Black Sabbath to The Moody Blues, ELO to Judas Priest, they’ve all been responsible for resonating classics. However, there are always bands that tend to be overlooked, taken for granted or just plain bloody ignored.
Hearing a band such as Detroit’s Dead In 5 is always refreshing, and restores some hope for the state of hard rock and heavy metal. Gene Simmons has been quoted declaring rock music as a genre is dead, but hearing bands like this one proves him wrong.
