Review: Play Dead - From the Promised Land

1980s post-punk that has often been labeled as Goth Rock, Play Dead’s music centered around martial beats, buzz saw guitars and menacing lyrics.  There is also a distant undercurrent of Cold and Dark Wave that I find particularly appealing.

Because of label mismanagement and other circumstances, they never received the attention that other like-minded groups had.  Though they never achieved great popularity, Play Dead managed to churn out quite a large number of quality albums and singles.  Go ahead and check ‘em out.
