Deemed Psychotic's The 1st brings listeners back to the heart of guitar dominated hard rock. Breaking from the current trend of sterile sampling and diminished guitar in modern music, Deemed Psychotic load song after song with five layered guitars blended with commanding bass lines and dynamic keyboards. Irresistible double vocals moving back and forth from Kylyra's piercing wails to KarrArikh Tor's smoky voice and lashings of punk complete the band's unmatched hard rock sound.
From the opening chord on the blistering Gunning 4 Elle to the very end of the The 1st, powerhouse hard rock complete with memorable guitar riffs drives the album. Lyrically, the band moves from social commentary to introspection to humour with equal ease and confidence. Cult favorite Methane Man shows off Deemed Psychotic's humor handled with the band's typical tongue-in-cheek attitude, while The Hunter confronts the mindset of modern killers. The Bauhaus-like November and the haunting From Behind show off Deemed Psychotic's versatility and musical range. Through it all, Deemed Psychotic manages to create a memorable band sound, unmistakable in today's music market. The un-rivaled sound of The 1st will mesmerize, captivate, and spellbind listeners. An essential album for your collection.
