Hollywood Undead; Day of the Dead

Not even the departure of long time members, or the push back of the album’s release date could hold back the band from releasing another amazing album. These six masked men from California once again secure their position in the music industry.
Day of the Dead’s standard 12 track or 16 track deluxe album is full of the band’s trademark aggressive rock-rap fusion. Hollywood Undead has grown over the past decade and continues to evolve into a band more focused on presenting authentic music to better suit their message. The callous aggression that laced their previous releases is more precise now.
Tracks like I’LL BE THERE, Day of the Dead, GRAVITY, and TAKE ME HOME are full of raw emotions. The kind of emotions that one can only sing about after having suffered the deepest loss or having your heart broken by a lover. The heavy hitting tracks on Day of the Dead are still brutal though. DEITWHTFD smashing through the genre barriers like a Roman bettering-ram. Disease could easily be the latest anthem for anyone who feels like they don’t fit in with society’s cookie cutter roles.
Overall, Day of the Dead has become one of my favorite releases of 2015. The band continues to raise their bar with each release, and Day of the Dead is no exception.
