Northeast Ohio Metalcore band Dead Cassette made their professional recording debut in 2019 with the Blackbear cover “Hot Girl Bummer.” That track introduced a hard-hitting band with impressive musical chops and a genre-bending melodic sense. The band consists of lead vocalist Justin Karallus, rhythm guitarist & vocalist Corbin Wandling, lead guitarist Arthur Lawrence, bassist Joe Hoover, and drummer Kollin Manuel.
“Revive” is the latest single from Dead Cassette, released worldwide to all major streaming services on November 2, 2021. The track is the first single from the group’s forthcoming debut album. The band is currently putting the finishing touches on the record and they expect to release it in early 2022. If the new single is any indication, then the record promises to be a groove-heavy rocker.
The single opens on a funky, Pantera-style guitar riff. That phrase remains at the heart of the mix throughout the verse. Soon, Manuel’s double-kick assault and Karallus’ guttural howl launch the band into a syncopated metal groove. The band takes only a brief detour from the Metal when they show their Emo side in the song’s big melody-driven chorus.
