DEAD FICUS “Rise Or Fall”

“Rise Or Fall”

Battle Helm Rating

I guess all band names are good band names but sometime you gotta wonder what possessed a band to choose the name they have. DEAD FICUS sounds to me like a new Lawnmower Deth or a Spinal Tap for the 21st century. But that is just the name. Strasbourg might be the home of some of EU’s administration but that doesn’t stop this band from playing some sort of melodic death metal. With a (French?) twist to it. The keyboards that are there in the back ground ads to the feeling that this isn’t your run of the mill melodic death metal. Add to it influences from modern metalcore as well as good old heavy metal and you get an album by a band that really know what they are doing. Anders Ekdahl
