Said to sound like "Iron Maiden trading blows with Lamb of God", this follow up to the critically acclaimed "The Queen of Steel" will not disappoint the refined metal pallet. Here are a few things being said so far:
"They still have that great metal sound, and they play the songs with confidence. The sound and technique are perfect, great heavy rock or lighter shade of metal. Feels akin to the old school bands of the 80s/90s. The midway point between modern standard metal and the hair stuff, when vocalists could hit high notes with impunity and talent. They have an Iced Earth feels, that’s what keeps coming to my mind. They have the same energy as this legendary band, and I can see them getting that ON, if they can keep this pace up. They have all the talent, hopefully they have the drive to match!"
"Almost one year removed from the band's righteous The Queen of Steel EP, Austin, Texas heavy metal groove thrashers Dead Earth Politics return with this 4-track following, "Men Become Gods", making everything right with the world. Or at least for the time being. There's always tomorrow and new darkness to be had, but for the here and now this one's a real deal banger and it bangs HARD! "
-- Heavy Metal Time Machine
"At the end of the day, Men Become Gods has the ability to enlighten you and grant you the sort of peace of mind that is hard to come by these days. In a world where all seems hellbent against us and the future looks ever more dismal, Dead Earth Politics provide a way forward and give you the strength to carry on. These songs are groovy and poignant, using big choruses to draw you in and powerful riffs to keep the listener hooked. Clearly on the verge of something big, I’m excited for what’s to come for Dead Earth Politics!"
