Dirte - Broken Wings
DIRTE, which is an acronym meaning (DEATH ISN'T REALLY THE END) formed in late October 2013 by singer songwriter Lee Stevens and they feature Ben Jerram on Guitar/Vocals, Jack 'JD' Daniels on Guitar, Ben Reynolds on Bass and Will Hack on Drums.
I am reviewing their EP Broken Wings. Let's get into shall we.
We start with the first and title track "Broken Wings" the track starts with a killer guitar riff and launches into some amazing vocals all set to an awesome drumbeat. The song is fucking awesome, I actually found myself singing it all over the house. The lyrics are kick ass. It is so cool to hear some serious rock music again I absolutely love this song.
We move onto the next track "Chasin Rain" the song starts with some incredible guitar playing, yeah thank you! it is so cool to hear a guitar being played by someone who can make it talk, I mean seriously the guitarists in this band are phenomenal, they make this track unfuckingbelievable. The lyrics are first class and the vocals in this song are superb, Ben has a perfect rock voice, one of those voices that has so much power and aggression, and it is perfectly suited to the fast and furious yet totally unreal guitar riff in this song, my favourite song on the EP so far!
The next track is "Dead Inside" it starts with a slow guitar intro that builds and then unleashes, and once the vocals kick in and they are so raw and powerful, and they all combine to create this absolute wall of awesome. I love the lyrics in this song, man what a seriously awesome band, shit I wish I could see these guys live because I reckon they would shit over half the bands that are playing today, this is real rock none of the top forty shit that passes for rock.
The final track on the album is "Not Alone" and it a slower song but man I love it, This song is going to be an absolute classic, I just wanted to get my lighter out and hold it up. I especially love the lyrics they are just so poignant and the music, seriously I can't wait to buy their album.
I am giving these guys five shots of whiskey out of five, not only is their music freakin awesome but when I was reading an interview I saw this and decided I had to share it "Yea its great to sing the classics and get paid for it but it takes balls to write and perform your own material and that's something we aint short of and are willing to work at it instead of being yet another cover band for hire type shite".
How fucking cool is that! Seriously these guys deserve to be at the top. I think that they will be the next great rock gods, up there with the likes of Pearl Jam and the Red Hot Chilli Peppers. In fact I reckon that DIRTE has an edge and a rawness about their sound that makes them way better!
I especially love the fact that they are staying true to themselves and when you listen to this EP you can see that they have made the right choice, so much talent exists in this band that I can't wait till they tour the world and I might actually get to see them in OZ! I highly recommend that you get this E.P. I swear that you will have it heavy rotation!
