In Dread Response are a five piece metal band hailing from Auckland City, New Zealand. Having spent the better part of two years preparing their exceptional live act it becomes very evident its been far too long since you have seen this amount of energy and power on stage. With their music based on melody and intensity, In Dread Response succeeds in evoking emotions usually reserved for tragic epic movie moments and near death experiences. Combining all these elements makes for a very addictive listening experience and an even more hair raising live experience.
'From the Oceanic Graves', is In Dread Response's first full length album released on Dead Boy Records and achieves no less than melodic metal bliss. Clocking in at just under 62 minutes it's quickly clear that this is one of the, 'must own' CD's to add to your collection and one of the most unique and heart felt metal albums to be released this side of 1988. It's clear they have set out to make a mark on the metal scene and have succeeded.
"'From The Oceanic Graves' is a moody and very deep album filled with intense songs and brilliant arrangements. With a concise understanding of the art of dramatic melody and sweeping in and out of heaving crescendos, 'In Dead Response' effortlessly build a wicked soundscape of huge proportions here. An outstanding release from a band that's going places." 5/5 Stars - Rip it Up Magazine
