Death of Thieves are a Nottingham based 'tech' metal band that you keep an eye on. There recent 2010 release titled 'Elixir' was produced by Alex Newport (The Mars Volta), the album art was designed by Tom Lacey (Ghost of a Thousand) and there is a collaboration with Sean Smith (The Blackout). So this album has a lot going for it from the off.
The album itself is ferocious from beginning to end. Telling you to burn these broadcasts at the start and by the end your nothing with out your guns. The vocals are more about getting the message out that wowing your with complex harmonies and stylish effects, its to the point but I did find some parts hard to listen to, the melodies where just too far from the music. Musically the album is very complex and mind blowing at some points. The guitars are racing up and down there respective fret boards with great ease. There are moments when you can hear clear tapping bass lines which I do have a soft spot for. This album reminds me a lot of Protest the Heros first album, and if you like them and other bands like Cancer Bats and Every Time I Die I would recommend this band to you.
Big tracks from this album to check out are 'Tokio Rose', 'Bring Me the head of Ignorance' and 'For the Love of Eleanor Bone'.
