Leaving a wake of prog vitality as they continue their punk quest with their seventh LP

Album Review: …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead – Tao Of The Dead (Century Media)

7 / 10 Another [a]…And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead[/a] record, another album adorned with artwork fit for a 4x4’s spare wheel cover. Fortunately, that matters zilch given the Texans continue the scintillating form rediscovered on preceding opus [b]‘The Century Of Self’[/b]. As their Punk Floyd brio dictates, [b]‘Tao…’[/b] is replete with numerous concurrent running concepts, split into two thematic parts.

Potential pretension is blown to tiny slithers of lacerating prog come [b]‘Summer Of All Dead Souls’[/b], though, while even tempo drops like [b]‘Spiral Jetty’[/b] bristle with scarcely contained crackle. Sounding as vital as they ever have seven LPs down the track, there’s life in them yet.
